The same auc­tion that saw the Blue Moon of Josephine also in­cluded many note­wor­thy high­lights, such as the Queen Maria-josé ruby ring. Made with a Burmese ruby weigh­ing 8.48ct, it was owned by the last queen of Italy, Maria-josé (1906-2001) and boasts the pi­geon’s blood hue. Es­ti­mated at about US$5.8 mil­lion-$8.7 mil­lion, it was un­for­tu­nately left un­sold. Lots that sold well in­cluded ex­cep­tional coloured di­a­monds, jew­ellery with il­lus­tri­ous provenance and signed jew­els dis­play­ing the finest de­sign and work­man­ship of Cartier, Van Cleef & Ar­pels, Chaumet and JAR.
