Historic Christie’s Auction
Christie’s puts under the hammer next week the largest fancy vivid pink diamond that the famed auction house has ever sold, expecting to fetch $30 million to $50 million for the nearly 19-carat, rectangular-cut gemstone.
The “Pink Legacy” will be the standout offering at Christie’s fall jewelry auction in Geneva on Tuesday.
The stone once belonged to the Oppenheimer diamond family, and Christie’s says it qualifies as a Type IIa diamond — the most chemically pure stones with little if any nitrogen. It says fancy vivid pink diamonds over 10 carats are “virtually unheard of” in salesrooms.
Christie’s sale kicks off two days of jewelry auctions in Geneva. On Wednesday, Sotheby’s will auction jewelry once owned by French Queen Marie Antoinette that hasn’t been seen in public for 200 years.

Congratulations to our latest NYCWD couple Yolayna and Tomas!
And a HUGE thank you to Tomas who wrote our latest 5 Star YELP Review about his experience with NYC Wholesale Diamonds.
“I cannot put into words the gratitude and appreciation I have for Keith in this review because it will fall short of doing any justice to my experience. Beyond the fact that Keith is a respected and renowned expert the field of diamonds, his approach to provide guidance during an otherwise overwhelming process was the most important thing to me. He is part of an experience that I will remember for a lifetime and if I could bring him 1 MILLION MORE CUSTOMERS to show my critical acclaim for his work, I would without flinching. He is a true professional and his compassion for his clients is demonstrated through his candid approach. There was no pressure at any point of the experience from the initial conception of the ring idea, through payment and finally through sorting out insurance paperwork. Keith sets the standard for how this process should be conducted because beyond a financial transaction for the end customer, he facilitated an experience that makes you feel like family. The quality of the ring is breath-taking and I assure you my fiancé was floored by her new ring. Ring quality A+. Customer Experience A+. Timeliness A+. Thank you Keith!!!!!”

“Working with Keith Saxe is truly a first class experience the entire time! He is a true gentleman that will never pressure you, and will gladly help you until you are fully satisfied. I’ve worked with many jeweler’s in the past and none of them were more upfront and willing to work together than Keith. Most importantly, the quality of product is top notch! Working with Keith is best choice I made, and thank you again for creating my fiancé dream ring!”
