On May 15 Sotheby’s will set for auction two D-Flawless diamonds at the Magnificent Jewels and Nobel Jewels in Geneva. The Diamonds are estimated to fetch a diamond price of more than $15 million combined. Both of the diamonds are over 50 carats and D-color, flawless and type IIa. The two D-flawless diamonds are the largest of their shape to be sold at an auction. But before they go on sale the stones will be on display in London on April 6.
The first over 50-carat diamond is the 51.71 round cut diamond, estimated between $8.2 million to $9.5 million. The second is an oval shape of 50.39 carats that is estimated at $7.3 to $8 million. David Bennet, Chairman of Sotheby’s international jewelry division shares:
“Having witnessed the enormous effect of the 102.34 carat stone on those who saw it, we are not thrilled to bring to… market two more truly exceptional stones, bothe of which are among the largest, highest-quality white diamonds ever to come to auction” – David Bennet
The 102.34 round diamond was sold in a private sale after it was unveiled by a retail boutique specialized in the world’s finest diamonds. The new owner who bought the 102.34 round diamond with the same extraordinary color and clarity as the two stones stayed anonymous. As well as the price it was sold for. However, it is said that the stone was purchased for a price per carat that far exceeds what is paid for any colorless diamond sold during an auction. The highest price ever paid that is public is $260,252 per carat for a colorless diamond.
