One of the world’s largest pearl will be offered on April 20, 2011 at Christie’s spring jewelry sale in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Christie’s is showcasing a collection of pearls, diamonds, gems and gold jewelry ahead of the sale that will bring back Dubai’s nostalgic past as a major pearl hunting hub.

The drop-shaped pearl mounted as a pendant on a diamond-studded chain necklace will be the most interesting piece on sale this year. The 60-carat pearl, which is one of the largest natural saltwater pearls recorded to date, is estimated to fetch up to $250,000 in the next month’s auction.

Christie`s spring auction in Dubai will present nearly one hundred jewelry lots ranging from an elephant-shaped gem ring worth $4,000-$6,000 to a diamond flower necklace which converts into a tiara with matching earrings worth $450,000-$550,000.

Christie’s has sold more than $200 million worth of art and jewelry since the start of its twice-annual inaugural auction in its only Middle East office in Dubai. [Christie’s]
