The center stone, a marquise-cut type IIa diamond of D color and VVS2 clarity, is surrounded by tapered-baguette cut diamonds.

“We are privileged to present such a wonderful offering in the New York Jewels sale, led by the spectacular collection from a distinguished European family,” Caroline Morrissey, the director and head of jewelry at Bonhams, said in a statement. “To have such exceptional designs and stones from the golden age of Harry Winston throughout the auction is a rare phenomenon, and Bonhams is honored to share the legacy of these collectors with the world.”

Jennifer Aydin’s 9-Carat Engagement Ring Was an Upgrade

When Bravo fans first met Jennifer Aydin in Season 9 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, we quickly learned she had a strong appreciation for the finer things in life. That appreciation included a massive engagement ring and diamond wedding ring, which she wore on her left ring finger.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Fast forward to Season 11, and Jennifer upgraded her marriage bling even further when her husband, Bill Aydin, gifted her a 9-carat canary yellow diamond for their 18th anniversary. 

That ring truly deserves a moment in the spotlight.

Why did Jennifer Aydin get a new, larger engagement ring from her husband Bill?

Jennifer and Bill celebrated their 18th anniversary with a lavish dinner at home in the company of three of their four children, which was shown in Season 11 Episode 13 of RHONJ in May 2021. During the dinner, Bill surprised Jennifer by upgrading her engagement ring with a jaw-dropping 9-carat canary yellow diamond ring.

Not only did the ring have a dazzling center stone, it was also surrounded by a diamond halo and a diamond-studded triple-shank.

“Small present,” Bill joked as he presented his wife with the gift. “Half a carat per year.”

“No f-cking way,” Jennifer gasped as her husband opened the ring box. “I’ve always wanted a yellow diamond.”

Jennifer Aydin’s Previous Engagement Ring

Jennifer’s previous engagement ring was nothing to sneeze at.

Before she got her yellow diamond ring, Jennifer wore a large, square-shaped diamond on her left finger. The main stone was also set in a diamond halo and had another diamond on each side. She paired it with a pave wedding ring with large diamonds.

Shirley Bassey to auction jewellery including diamond ring from Elton John | Shirley Bassey

Diamonds Are Forever singer Shirley Bassey is to auction some of her extensive and “meaningful” jewellery collection, including a diamond ring given to her by Elton John.

Top lots from her collection, which will be exhibited by Sotheby’s London later this month before being auctioned for charity in Paris, include a diamond necklace estimated to sell for between €270,000 and €320,000 (£232,420 and £275,460). A diamond and gold parure created by Cartier is estimated to fetch between €200,000 and €250,000 (£172,170 and £215,210).

The 87-year-old famously sang about diamonds in the 1971 James Bond film starring Sean Connery and said she accepted the offer to sing the track as the lyrics “rang true to me and the way I felt about diamonds then and now.”

“Collecting jewellery for me is like collecting memories and this collection is full of them,” Bassey said. “All the pieces are meaningful and have a story to tell, whether I bought them for myself or they were gifted to me.

“There is this beautiful 1960s vintage Van Cleef & Arpels ring covered in white diamonds that Elton John gave me after I sang at one of his Aids Gala evenings and which I’ve worn so many times.

“Or the ruby and diamond heart parure I spotted in a fine jeweller’s window during a stopover in Bangkok on my way to my very first concert tour of Australia.

“And perhaps one of the most special pieces in the collection is this emerald parure I bought myself to commemorate my very first Royal Variety Performance in front of the late Queen.”

Bassey said she fell in love with jewellery “as an up-and-coming singer and I bought myself my first string of pearls – the first piece of jewellery I’d ever bought.”

Other lots include a yellow diamond

What you’ll see during April 8 total solar eclipse

We’ve now reached the one-week warning in the countdown to the Great American Eclipse, which will be the last total solar eclipse to cross a significant portion of the U.S. for two decades.

On Monday, April 8, the moon will pass between the sun and the Earth, darkening the sky in a brief, rare, twilight-like display that experts say will leave viewers gobsmacked.

RELATED: The best Michigan state parks for watching April’s total solar eclipse

While many people across the U.S. will observe a partial eclipse, millions are expected to watch this historic event along the eclipse’s path of totality: the traveling arc of the moon’s shadow within which observers will see the sun’s disk completely covered. But what exactly will they see?

This NASA illustrates the path of totality for the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse.

According to NASA, a total solar eclipse has several distinct stages that include dazzling phenomena. Under clear skies, from a viewing location within the path of totality, here’s what observers can expect to experience:

(Note that solar eclipse glasses and solar filters for phones and cameras are necessary for viewing all parts of a total solar eclipse except for the brief moments of totality. Eclipse glasses are necessary for viewing all parts of this eclipse if you’re watching from outside the path of totality.)

Partial eclipse: As the moon starts to pass between the sun and the Earth, the sun will take on a crescent shape. In most places, this phase will last between 70 and 90 minutes.

Shadow bands: A few minutes before totality, you may see long, rapidly moving bands of darkness separated by white spaces on the sides of buildings

What are Baily’s Beads, Diamond Ring?

There is more to a solar eclipse than totality, including the interesting science behind the solar-eclipse-2024-live-updates-photos-video-forecast”eclipse phases along the path to a total solar eclipse.

On April 8, a total solar eclipse will be visible across parts of the U.S., from Texas to Maine. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun for several minutes. 

From partial eclipse through totality, the process takes several hours. The final moments before totality include displays of light known as Baily’s Beads and the Diamond Ring caused by the pock-marked surface of the Moon.

Here are a few eclipse phases to know before April 8:

A partial eclipse makes the Sun look like a crescent shape, which will start early into the eclipse and happen after totality. One of the first places in the U.S. to see a partial eclipse will be Eagle Pass, Texas, at 12:55 p.m. CT.

Caribou, Maine, will be one of the last cities in the U.S. to experience the eclipse starting at 2:22 p.m. ET before it heads into Maritime Canada and out over the Atlantic Ocean after 4:40 p.m. ET.

A 6.2-Carat Pink Diamond Ring Leads Phillips’s Geneva Jewels Auction

Phillips’s latest auction is something of a bejeweled masterpiece.

The auction house will hold next month its second Geneva Jewels Auction, on the heels of its first such offering in November. And headlining the bunch is an impressive 6.2-carat Fancy Vivid Pink diamond ring, expected to sell for $10.5 million to $15 million, according to Phillips’s pre-sale estimates.

“As our Jewels department experiences continued growth and expansion, we are proud to unveil these exquisite highlights in anticipation of our second Jewels auction in Geneva this May,” Benoît Repellin, Phillips’s worldwide head of jewelry, said in a statement.

The Amazon Queen emerald

The pink diamond ring outshines most of the other lots in the auction—which is really saying something. The diamond, classified as Type IIa, features VS1 clarity alongside strong saturation, a very vivid hue, and flawless polish and symmetry. But it’s not the only standout lot of the bunch: A massive 280.8-carat Colombian emerald, dubbed “The Amazon Queen,” is expected to hammer down for $1.5 million to $2.6 million. And an extremely rare red diamond, known as “The Argyle Phoenix,” could fetch $1 million to $1.5 million. That piece, weighing in at 1.6 carats, displays a brilliant cut that isn’t typically seen with red diamonds.

Elsewhere in the Geneva Jewels Auction, more diamond jewelry is set to fetch top dollar. A Harry Winston diamond necklace with a pear-shaped, 11.3-carat yellow diamond is expected to reach as much as $500,000. A pair of 10-plus-carat diamond earrings are estimated at $1.3 million to $1.8 million, while an important Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond ring weighing 27.3 carats may cross the block for $2 million.
