The late Huguette Clark’s collection of jewelry, worth millions of dollars, will go on auction April 17 at Christie’s in New York, msnbc.com reports.
The gems, located in a vault, have not been seen in public in many decades. The priciest item is a rare pink cushion-cut 9 carat diamond ring valued at $6 to $8 million. Clark passed away last spring at the age of 104.
The heiress’s huge Fifth Avenue apartments went on sale recently for $55 million. Her entire $400 million estate, including her East Cabrillo Boulevard property, is now the subject of a raging dispute involving her distant relatives.
