Sotheby’s Sells 100-Carat Round for Record Per-Carat Price %Jeweler NYC %NYC Wholesale Diamonds

London–Two months after the Sotheby’s Diamonds retail boutique in London unveiled a 102.34-carat round diamond, it has found a buyer for the stone.

The Type IIa GIA-graded diamond is the largest round, D color, flawless diamond on record, and the only round brilliant over 100 carats with perfect color and clarity, according to the auction house.

De Beers mined the rough for this diamond, which weighed 425 carats, in Botswana about two years ago. Diacore cut and polished the stone in Johannesburg and New York over a period of six months.

Sotheby’s would not reveal the identity of the buyer or the total price paid, only noting that the final price per carat “far exceeds” that for any colorless diamond sold at auction. The current price-per-carat auction record for a white diamond is $260,252, set at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong in 2013.

When Sotheby’s unveiled the diamond in February, it told National Jeweler that not only would it beat the price-per-carat record, but it also would top the highest price paid for any diamond jewelry at auction, which stands at $33.7 million for De Grisogono’s “The Art of De Grisogono, Creation I,” auctioned at Christie’s last November.

The auction house did not respond by press time when asked if the diamond had achieved the latter.

Patti Wong, founder and chairman of Sotheby’s Diamonds, said, “When the new custodian of this stone first beheld it, they were, like everyone else who has seen it, completely captivated. It is hard to believe that something so ancient … can be so alive, so full of fire and blinding brilliance. A rarity in the mythical world of 100-carat stones, this diamond is a wonder of nature and of man’s ability to shape nature’s creations into an object of ultimate beauty.”

Farnese Blue Diamond Could Sell for up to £5m

Indian gem that passed down through European royalty goes on sale for first time

%Jeweler NYC %NYC Wholesale Diamonds

A blue diamond that was secretly passed down through European royalty over three centuries is to go on sale for the first time.

The Farnese Blue, a 6.16-carat, pear-shaped, dark grey-blue gem said to be one of the most important historical diamonds left in private hands, is expected to fetch between £3.5m and £5m at auction in Switzerland.

It originated in the Golconda diamond mines of India and was given to Elisabeth Farnese in 1715 to mark her marriage to King Philip V of Spain.

The wedding took place after the war of the Spanish succession, which left Spain’s finances gravely depleted. The government ordered Spain’s colonies from Mexico to the East Indies to send wedding gifts.

A year later, in August 1715, a “Golden Fleet” set sail from Cuba to Spain, comprising 12 ships carrying a fortune in gold bullion and a casket of enormous emeralds. After 10 days’ sailing, a hurricane destroyed most of the fleet off Florida, with only one ship escaping.

The story goes that the emeralds were lost in one of the sunken ships, but one diamond found its way to Spain. That gem was gifted to the new Spanish queen by the governor general of the Philippine Islands.

Over the next 300 years, as Elisabeth’s and Philip’s descendants married into Europe’s most important dynasties, the Farnese Blue passed down through royal families in Spain, France, Italy and Austria, travelling across the continent in a royal casket.

Its existence is said to have been secret from all except close relatives and the family jewellers. At one time it was mounted on a diadem alongside diamonds thought to have belonged to Marie-Antoinette.

Now it is being sold by one of Elisabeth’s descendants, and will be auctioned in Geneva on 15 May at Sotheby’s.

David Bennett, the chairman of international jewellery at the auctioneers, said: “This stone has witnessed 300 year of European history, and in colour is reminiscent of historic Golconda blue gems such as the Hope diamond.”

Philipp Herzog von Württemberg, the chairman of Sotheby’s Europe, said: “With its incredible pedigree, the Farnese Blue ranks among the most important historic diamonds in the world.”
