Record-Setting Diamond

Posted on September 3rd, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

Feast your eyes on “The Premier Blue!” This rare 7.59 carat diamond is the world’s largest in the Fancy Vivid blue category. The stone is considered to be “internally flawless,” and is the largest round Fancy Vivid to be graded by the Gemological Institute of America.

No diamond of this size or kind has ever been auctioned worldwide, until now. The gem will be put up for auction at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong October 7th, and is projected to sell for $19 million. If the auction price reaches this estimation, it will achieve a new world record, currently held by Sotheby’s for the 6.01 carat that was auctioned at $1,686,505 per carat in 2011.

Prior to the auction, the diamond will be put on display in various locations in Asia, Geneva, London, New York and Doha.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
