The World’s Most Beautiful Diamonds Coming to Auction
An impressive flawless 163-carat diamond that has been hailed the “World’s Most Beautiful” will go under Christie’s hammer in Geneva, CH in November.
Discovered in February 2016 in eastern Angola, the 404.20-carat rough diamond named the “4 de Fevereiro” was also the largest found so far in the southern African country, Christie’s said.
A team of ten diamond-cutting specialist were involved polishing the rough diamond during the period of 11 months. The stone was then designed into a 1-of-a-kind piece by Swiss jewelry house de Grisogono.
The D-color, emerald-cut diamond is classified as a rare Type IIa one, which in technical terms means an almost complete absence of nitrogen in the stone, de Grisogono said.
Have a terrific weekend.
