ON THE BLOCK: One of the world’s rarest pearl necklaces will return to the auction circuit this October. Sotheby’s will auction “The Cowdray Pearls” at its Oct. 7 Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels sale, and estimates that the Cartier-signed piece could fetch between $ 4.5 and $ 7 million.
The necklace itself is composed of 42 extremely rare gray saltwater pearls, and the auction firm says it is a near-impossible occurrence to find that many grey pearls that create a proper match. The necklace is accompanied by a pair of matching earrings, with mounts also by Cartier.
Chin Yeow Quek, deputy chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and chairman of international jewelry, Asia, said of the lot: “Natural saltwater gray pearls are rarely seen at auction and the present necklace, strung with 42 superb gray pearls and of aristocratic provenance, is arguably the greatest of its kind in existence. This is an extraordinary collecting opportunity for pearl and jewellery connoisseurs around the world.”
Sotheby’s first auctioned the necklace in 1937. The piece originally belonged to the Viscountess Cowdray, Lady Pearson, who died in 1932.
The auction firm also holds the record for selling the most expensive natural gray pearl at auction, with the December 2012 sale of the Wrightsman Pearl brooch for

Reports YAHOO! News:
Police described the suspect as a 21-year-old white man in a sweatshirt or hoodie and jeans, according to Charleston newspaper The Post and Courier. It cited unconfirmed reports that as many as eight people may have been hit by gunfire.
Charleston Police Department spokesman Charles Francis said the shooting occurred at the Emanuel AME Church around 9 p.m. local time.
He said police were still searching for a suspect, and he had no information on victims. Further details were not immediately available.
North Carolina television station WGHP, a Fox affiliate, reported on its website that some of the victims may have died.
Local broadcaster WCSC reported that the FBI was on the scene. The FBI could not be immediately reached to comment.
The website for the church said it has one of the largest and oldest black congregations in the region.
The church was built in 1891 and is considered a historically significant building, according to the National Park Service.
“We’re still gathering information so it’s not the time yet for details,” said Mayor Joe Riley. “I will say that this is an unspeakable and heartbreaking tragedy in this most historic church, an evil and hateful person took the lives of citizens who had come to worship and pray together.”
Anyone with information about shooting on Calhoun Street call dispatch at 743 7200

The world turned upside down on Wednesday with Madonna's first-ever appearance on "The Howard Stern Show," and while it wasn't the "gay Super Bowl," as Bravo host Andy Cohen termed it (maybe a tad hyperbolic there), it was pretty surreal to hear the Queen on Pop in conversation with the King of All Media after so many years (decades, really) of seemingly mutual distaste. So how did it go? I'm a little mixed, to be honest. …

On Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned of a “potentially historic” snowstorm that could dump up to 3 feet of snow across the five boroughs. The city had 1,800 plows at the ready and 250,000 tons of salt to spread over the 6,000 miles of city roads.
But when New Yorkers woke up Tuesday morning, they saw a more paltry 7 to 9 inches of the white stuff outside — a veritable Snor’easter.
And while city-dwellers were spared the worst of the storm — which pummeled parts of Long Island and New England with over 30 inches of snow and up to 70 mile per hour winds — that doesn’t mean it didn’t leave its mark on the Big Apple.
The number of rabbits seized from a Brooklyn backyard as the storm approached the city. The bunnies’ owner told DNAinfo that about 20 police officers temporarily confiscated the cuddly pets to protect them from the elements.
The number of non-emergency vehicles that should have been on the city’s streets after 11 p.m. Monday. Mayor de Blasio announced a travel ban, which ended at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The NYPD said Tuesday that no one was arrested or issued summonses for violating the ban. The streets were eerily empty in Manhattan:

Acres of New York City parks that were closed to the public during the storm. The parks are back open now, but de Blasio warned people to be on the look out for falling branches as trees are weighed down with snow.

The number of people Louis C.K. had to tell that he was canceling his sold-out show at Madison Square Garden because of the storm.
From an email CK sent to the ticketholders:
“…there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City. They are calling this storm “historic” which…. Well I didn’t know you could call a thing historic if it hasn’t happened yet. But I’m not one to defy future historic events. And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show. I think it’s clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel. Besides, if you’ve ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don’t want to even know what the deposit is on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.”

The number of men in Brooklyn looking for that special woman on Craigslist who wants to have sex in the snow. (We actually wouldn’t be surprised if there were others. After all, plenty of people flocked to the site in search of company during the storm.)
“Looking for a pretty lady that has a fetish for cold,” the post reads. “After making naked snow angels we will then proceed to have ‘hot’ snow sex. I understand this is a very unique fetish so no experience is needed!”
