88.22 carat oval diamond, D color flawless TYPE IIA (estimate: HK$88 million to HK$100 million)

Will be exhibited in Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo and Hong Kong

Rare and giant diamonds have been admired by royal families and dignitaries since ancient times, and they are still coveted by jewelry collectors and connoisseurs today. This year’s spring auction, Sotheby’s grandly presents an 88.22-carat D color flawless Type IIa oval-shaped diamond with flawless color, clarity and cut. This diamond will lead the " Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Jewelry " auction to be held on April 2, with an estimated price of HK$88 million to HK$100 million. As far as I can remember, there have been only three oval-shaped white diamonds of the same quality over 50 carats in the history of auctions. The 88.22-carat giant diamond launched this time is the largest diamond of its kind to be auctioned in the past five years, and is extremely precious.


The most perfect diamond

David Bennett, global chairman of Sotheby's International Jewelry Department, said: "Anyone who has the opportunity to see this huge diamond will describe it like this: 'breathtaking'."

This white diamond is of staggering weight, with flawless color, clarity and cut, and has achieved the highest level in each of the diamond quality grading standards (also known as the 4Cs). The diamond is D color (the highest grade of white diamond); of excellent clarity (completely flawless inside and out); and of excellent cut, polish and symmetry.

Like the British Crown Jewels "Korea-Noor" and "Star of Africa" ​​diamonds, this 88.22-carat diamond belongs to the rare Type IIa type*, accounting for less than 2% of all diamonds. It has the purest chemical composition and is even more amazingly transparent. Admire.

The magical creations of nature are transformed in the hands of skilled craftsmen

It is rare to find a rough diamond that can cut more than 80 carats of diamonds. The 242-carat rough stone was unearthed from the Jwaneng quarry in Botswana. The mine is jointly owned by De Beers and the Botswana government and is known for producing top-quality rough stones.

After the rough stone was unearthed, it underwent months of unremitting cutting and polishing to achieve a symmetrical and dazzling oval-shaped diamond. Since the rough stone is rectangular, the craftsman chose an oval cut to reduce material consumption and obtain the maximum amount of diamond. Cutting such an important diamond requires first-class skill and precision. Only a few cutters in the world possess such extraordinary skills.

Top white diamond market

Sotheby's is an industry pioneer in selling important white diamonds. Last year, Sotheby's brought a series of rare white diamonds. This year, Sotheby's will continue its efforts and present this 88.22-carat full-color All-American white diamond. In April 2018, a private collector purchased a 102.34-carat rare white diamond through the world's top diamond retail brand " Sotheby's Diamonds ". It is the only round diamond in the world exceeding 100 carats and with perfect color, 4C standard Everything below is of the utmost beauty.

A month later, Sotheby's auctioned two D-color flawless Type IIa top white diamonds in Geneva - a 51.71-carat round diamond and a 50.39-carat oval diamond . The two sold for US$9.3 million and US$8.1 million respectively, both exceeding high prices. Valuation.
