Are diamonds really a girls best friend? Hard to say really but youd hope not - lets face it, you cant talk to a rock and for that you might be better off joining a book club or a latte appreciation society or better still, getting a French bulldog. Still, this doesnt change the fact that diamonds are indeed wonderful, and as any guy with half a brain knows, the road out of the doghouse is that much smoother when its paved with glittering diamonds.

That road may well lead to Clars Auction Gallerys May 31st Fine Art & Antique auction, where a host of great diamond encrusted pieces willl be on offer. Leading the way is Lot 6815 (above), a stunning eight-carat yellow diamond and near colorless diamond ring. This is an exquisite piece, expected by many to top the sale, with an estimated sale price of $80,000 - $100,000.

Guys shopping for a wedding ring that will truly close the deal need look no further than Lot 6814, a diamond, platinum ring and wedding band. This eye-catching piece consists of one round five-carat diamond, accented by two tapered baguette diamonds, set in a handmade platinum mounting, together with a fitted platinum wedding band. What a gem!

Diamonds arent just about rings though, and they reliably serve as the perfect compliment to other precious stones. Lot 6816, a pair of sapphire and diamond clip earrings, illustrates this perfectly. Consisting of two cushion cut 12 carat sapphires, accented by four marquise and two old European cut diamonds set in gold mountings, this pair is sure to turn heads at even the swankiest party.
