Sotheby’s held an auction May 13 featuring two diamonds weighing in at over 100 carats.
The “Graff Vivid Yellow” is a 100.9-carat yellow diamond, an extremely rare and bright gem that sold for $16.3 million. Another top lot to be featured is a 103.46 round white diamond, one of the largest brilliant-cut diamonds in the world, sold for $4.9 million. Both stones were cut by London-based jeweler Laurence Graff.
In addition to these large gems was “The Victory Diamond,” a stunning 31.34-carat white diamond, and the “Pink Star” diamond we have mentioned a couple times in the past. The “Pink Star” was auctioned in November, but the buyer failed to pay. In total, the auction brought in a record $141 million.
