Glorious 101.73ct Pear shaped Diamond
The yet unnamed 101.73ct Pear shaped Diamond
Recently auctions for vintage jewelry and large white diamonds have been setting auction records. If you remember the last large diamond that was up for auction was “The Duke” or the Archduke Joseph diamond which weighs 76.45cts and had a pre-sale estimate of $15 million. That Diamond and had sold for $21.5 million. This stone was owned by Alfredo J. Molina, chairman of California-based jeweler Black, Starr & Frost. The winning bidder, who wished to remain anonymous, is going to donate the diamond for display at a museum. So in the meantime that lovely stone is awaiting its moment of glory at the chosen museum. It’ll be great to actually view that stone in person~
Larger white diamonds have been selling well at the auction house. After a small slump in larger stones and items of jewelry (who can forget the incredible and news worthy jewelry from dame Elizabeth Taylors estate?)
I was searching on Christies site to see what other jewels are going to be auctioned with the Pear Diamond, my mind is spinning with all the possibilities!
Keep sparkling til next time~
