Jewellery owned by the late best-selling author Jackie Collins is set to be sold at auction later this year.
The collection of jewels will include a 6.04-carat diamond and platinum ring estimated at $100,000 (£80,000)-$150,000 (£120,000); an Art Deco diamond, emerald, stone and platinum necklace at $40,000 (£32,000)-$50,000 (£40,000); and signed pieces by Cartier and Nardi among others.
Meanwhile, watches by Patek Philippe, Harry Winston, Chanel and Chopard will also be auctioned.
The jewellery is part of the $3m (£2.4m) 1,000-lot estate that is being auctioned at the Jackie Collins: A Life in Chapters sale at Bonhams Los Angeles in May.
The auction house described Collins’ collection of jewellery as “bold, strong and colourful”.
Leslie Wright, Bonhams vice-president, said: “A Life in Chapters celebrates the phenomenal career and times of this stylish and glamorous woman.
“Jackie Collins lived the lifestyle about which she wrote, and the sale will provide an exclusive insight into the real woman behind her unforgettable characters. Her books were loved by millions of readers worldwide. This is their chance to own a piece of the magic.”
The British-born star published her first novel, The World is Full of Married Men, in 1968, marking the start of a 47-year writing career. The book was a bestseller, as were her next 31 novels which together sold more than 500 million copies in 40 countries worldwide.
