A sapphire-and-diamond brooch once worn by legendary musician Elton John while filming his music videos “I don’t wanna go on with you like that,” is all set to go under hammer this week. Designed like a “J,”the art deco piece worn by John in 1988 is now estimated to generate sales of 12,000-15,000 pounds (US$22,330-27,900) at Bonhams auction house in London on 25 September. The 1930s-era brooch features brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds and oval-cut and circular-cut sapphires. The brooch, on sale this autumn at Bonhams, has an estimate value of 12,000-15,000 pounds (US$22,330-27,900).
Other priceless valuables of the scheduled auction include a De Beers 11.03-carat emerald-cut diamond ring that may generate $593,000.
