Three rings featuring fancy vivid colour diamonds created a sensation at Christie’s Magnificent Jewels, selling for a combined price of $8.4 million at the New York sale.

The three colourful diamonds were known collectively as the Perfect Palette, with the 2.17 carat fancy-vivid purplish-pink diamond ring selling for $3.5 million. The 2.13-carat fancy vivid blue diamond ring sold for $2.7 million, and the 2.34 carat fancy vivid orange diamond ring went for $2.2 million.

The auction was held online and drew participants from 40 countries across five continents. Other notable sales included a diamond and onyx Serpenti wristwatch, donated by Bulgari in support of the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. The watch sold for $50,000 and the proceeds will be donated to the charity.
