The Flawless 118ct Diamond that Sold For £19m
The famous white diamond we have recently posted about hit the auction this week and amazed us all with its record breaking £19m sale price.
The auction took place at Sotheby’s Hong Kong auction house when two phone bidders competed for the huge, flawless rock. The stone is oval shaped, and was cut two years ago after it was mined in South Africa. The diamond also made history by topping the current record for a diamond of this size and quality, which was $26.7 million.
As well as this remarkable diamond the auction also stared a 7.6 carat flawless, vivid blue diamond that sold for $16.1 million. The striking round shaped blue diamond is held in a halo style ring setting with beautiful pink diamonds surrounding and white diamonds set on the shoulders of the platinum band.
