Bulgari Rare Blue Diamond Ring to be Auctioned

Bulgari is calling and you are going to pay attention; there is no way not to when you are faced with this beautiful blue diamond ring. Blue diamonds are extremely rare in general, but even more so when they are over five carats. And this beauty weighs in at a lovely 5.3 carats. But don’t worry, you’ll be too stunned by her to notice the weight.

Bulgari created this original piece in the 1960s and named it the Trombino Ring. It is pieced together with baguette cut diamonds on the sides with the lovely blue diamond in a cushion shape top and center. Brilliant cut diamonds surround the centerpiece to add to its glow.

In this piece, like many of their others, Bulgari somehow managed to get the perfect relationship between simplicity and luxury. It is a classic ring design that would be beautiful to wear without the blue diamond, but that absolutely adds to its appeal.  The ring is going to be auctioned off and is expected to bring in up to 2.3 million dollars. But that is really just an estimate. The company had another watch that brought in double their expectations, so who knows what a piece like this may demand. And if you think you may want to be the wearer of this blue diamond ring, today may be your lucky day. The auction will not take place until April 24, 2013 giving you two full months to find the funding!
