‘Sex and the City’ actress and fashionista, Sarah Jessica Parker, has teamed up with jewelry artist Cindy Chao for a brooch that is estimated to be worth between $750,000-$950,000 USD.

After making a guest appearance at the opening of Chao’s Beijing boutique in 2012, Parker and the internationally-renowned jewelry designer decided to collaborate on a special piece. The result is a 2014 Black Label Masterpiece “Ballerina Butterfly” brooch. It took two years of design sketches, materials, and samples, but the result is absolutely beautiful.

The body is constructed from titanium and 18 carat gold, 26.27 carats of cushion brown diamonds, three rough diamond cut slices, 3 conch pearls, and 4,698 miniature diamonds.


“Cindy’s jewelry designs are true works of art; they capture the eye and imagination in a memorable way. I am so pleased to partner with her on this project, which benefits the wonderful work of the New York City Ballet, an organization that is close to my heart,” Parker said of working with Chao.

The brooch will be auctioned at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Sale on October 7th, with all net proceeds going to the New York City Ballet.
