Blue and Pink Diamonds
There is always something exciting going on in the world of diamonds and jewelry. Take for instance, within the past week two diamonds, one blue and the other pink, exceeded expectations when it came time for auction. Christie’s made the announcement that the Clark Pink Diamond fetched a record 15.7 million dollars being purchased by Brett Stettner. When later asked about the enormous price tag, he calmly stated that he was actually prepared to pay even a more precious sum of money.
To top that little snippet, Mr. Stettner was not finished with making other purchases for rare and beautiful diamonds. He managed a successful bid for a Fancy Blue Diamond at Sotheby’s from Tiffany & Co. on April 18th. The 2.4 million price tag paled in comparison to the stunning Clark Pink Diamond, however, it made news for its shocking per carat cost of $687,712. What’s more, the pre-auction price was only around $500,000 for the entire diamond ring; how about that WOW factor!
Well, this is only a few examples of what transpired last week in the diamond news from around the world. But there is so much more that can really set your heart to racing when you learn just how much excitement can be experienced at one of these amazing auctions. Two of the regulars in the auction business are Christie’s and Sotheby’s. They both have locations in various places around the world that include Hong Kong and Geneva.
Sotheby’s Geneva is set to auction yet another high profile diamond next month. The Beau Sancy Diamond, one of the world’s oldest and most storied stones, will leave its exhibit in Paris for London, then Zurich, and then a Geneva auction on May 14th. The Beau Sancy Diamond, weighing in at 34.98 carats is 400 years old and is a historically famous stone, once owned by British aristocracy, French royalty, and the Medici family. It’s expected to fetch at least $4 million.
