Over 100 Carat Diamond Sells At Auction
While in Las Vegas the last few days I've seen some big diamonds but nothing even close to this gobstopper. The largest diamond ever auctioned off in Asia , a 101.27 carat stone we first mentioned back in February, sold for $6.21 million to a private buyer at Christie's in Hong Kong on Wednesday. The stone was originally cut from a 460-carat rough. The stone is an F color (D is the highest) and only a slight surface imperfection brought this remarkable stone's clarity value down to VVS1. Only three colorless diamonds of more than 100 carats have appeared at auction, selling in Geneva. The new owner gets naming rates.
