A Possible Record-Breaking Diamond Headlines Upcoming Auction

Christie’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels auction is set for Tuesday, November 10 and the headliner is a stamp-sized pink diamond that could set a new record.   Here’s a look at that and four other stunners set to go under the hammer on that day.

1.  An Important Coloured Diamond Ring

We wrote extensively about this stone in September.   It is a 16.08-carat Fancy Vivid pink diamond, the largest Fancy Vivid Pink ever sold at auction.  The pre-auction estimate for the diamond has been set for between $23 and $28 million (USD).   If it ends up selling for more than $33,768,000, it will break the record for the highest per-carat price for a pink diamond in history.

2.  An Important Coloured Diamond Pendant

A massive 91.81-carat Fancy Vivid yellow cushion-shaped diamond features a pavé-set diamond loop at the top and is mounted in gold.   The pendant is expected to sell for between $3.9 and $4.9 million, an estimate that might be a little low considering the size of the stone.

3.  An Important Coloured Diamond Ring

The centerpiece of this ring is a 21.52-carat Fancy brown-pink pear brilliant-cut diamond and includes baguette-cut diamond shoulders.   The estimates for this ring have been set at between $1.5 and $1.9 million.

4.  A Rare Coloured Diamond Ring

The only blue diamond on our list, this is a Fancy dark bluish gray cushion-shaped diamond weighing in at 25.00 carats.   Driven by the rarity of the stone’s colour, the pre-auction estimate has been set for between $1.2 and $1.5 million.

5.  A Coloured Diamond and Diamond Ring
