    Two Diamonds Over 100 Carats Featured in Sotheby’s Auction

    Posted on May 15th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

    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.

    Would you wear a 100-carat diamond?

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
