LAST SLIDE

The Christie's Jewelry Sale Kicks Off Wednesday

In keeping with the theme of Sparkle Week, Christie's is having a jewelry sale on Wednesday. But you'd better have some mighty deep pockets for these baubles. The diamonds — with one weighing in at 32.72 carats — have estimated prices in the six figures. The other gems include rubies (a 6.76-carat Burmese set with diamonds) and sapphires. Of course, the real star of the collection is an antique ivory, gem-covered elephant, circa 1900. We know, we know, it's ivory, and there is something a bit odd about carving an elephant out of a tusk (sort of like watching a pig eat bacon). But we can't deny just how stunning the piece is, and had we enough coin, we'd keep him on a velvet pillow in our apartment. Here's a preview of other gorgeous pieces you probably can't afford. Go ahead, drool with us.

April 22, 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Christie's, 20 Rockefeller Plaza, nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-636-2000.
