A Pink Diamond

Pink diamonds are among the rarest gemstones on earth, and among the most mysterious. Whereas colorless diamonds are pure carbon, blue diamonds are the result of traces of boron, and the presence of nitrogen creates yellow diamonds, scientists can only theorize what causes a diamond’s pink color. The prevailing view is that intense seismic pressure alters the stone’s crystal structure at the molecular level, producing the pink hue. Collectors will soon have the rare opportunity to bid on one of these mysterious and dazzling treasures of nature. Offered in the October 16 auction is a Fancy Intense Orangy Pink Diamond, approx. 2.40 carats, SI2 clarity, from the Property of a Sarasota Lady (est. $100,000-150,000).

The Estate of Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet

A special feature of the upcoming sale is jewelry from the Estate of Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet. Known as Eles (pronounced ‘Liz’), she was born in Birmingham, Alabama, to a prominent steel manufacturing and shipbuilding family. Home for much of her life was Pelican Hall in Palm Beach, the elegant house built by her grandfather in 1937 and where she entertained the elite of Palm Beach society. She divided the rest of her time between Birmingham, New York and Maine. An avid sportswoman, Eles enjoyed yachting and fishing in the Gulf and the Caribbean and traveling for sporting parties in England, Scotland and Mexico. She was a generous donor to numerous charities, including organizations relating to cancer and animal conservation. She was a benefactor of the 1988 Academy Award-nominated film Gorillas in the Mist, based on the autobiography of conservationist Dian Fossey.

Jewelry from the Estate of Elesabeth Ingalls Gillet offers a range of pieces, from exquisite family heirlooms to bold and sometimes whimsical designs that embody a great lady and a life well-lived.  Read More
