 A twin-stone blue diamond ring will be the top lot at next month’s Christie’s New York auction, with a presale estimate of $6 million to $8 million.

The piece, bearing two pear modified brilliant-cut, fancy-vivid-blue, VS2-clarity diamonds weighing 3.06 and 2.61 carats, will go under the hammer at the Magnificent Jewels sale on April 16, the auction house said last week.

Christie’s will also offer three D-color diamonds over 15 carats each, including a marquise-cut, 16.69-carat, potentially internally flawless, type IIa stone. The diamond, which is from the collection of Elizabeth Stafford, duchess of Norfolk, is estimated at $1.2 million to $1.8 million.

An oval modified brilliant-cut, 6.11-carat, fancy-pink diamond ring with VVS1 clarity will also be up for auction, with a presale estimate of between $1.2 million and $1.5 million. The stone is one of a number of colored diamonds on offer. Several yellow stones will go under the hammer, including a pair of fancy-deep-yellow earrings weighing 7.55 and 7.51 carats, which are valued at $700,000 to $1 million. A 37.65-carat, fancy-intense-yellow diamond ring is estimated at $600,000 to $800,000, while a 35.06-carat, fancy-intense-yellow pendant will go up for $500,000 to $700,000.

Other notable lots include private collections from Florence and Herbert Irving and the estate of Jean Tailer, and signed pieces by Bulgari, Cartier, Harry Winston, Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels.

The auction house will preview the jewels between March 20 and April 15 in Los Angeles, Geneva, Hong Kong and New York.

Christie’s Jewels Online sale will run concurrently, from April 10 to April 18.
