At its May 14 Magnificent Jewels Sale in Geneva, Christie’s will auction the Blue, a 13.22 ct. pear shape it calls the largest flawless fancy vivid blue gem in the world.
It carries a $21 million–$25 million estimate. It is also the largest fancy vivid blue diamond to ever appear at auction, Christie’s says.
It will be sold alongside the Ocean Dream, a 5.5 ct. fancy vivid blue-green stone that is considered the largest fancy vivid blue-green diamond in the world. It carries a $7.5 million–$9 million estimate.
Also up for sale is the Rajah, a 26.14 ct. old-mine cut that carries a $3 million–$5 million estimate. It was once part of the collection of Mary Jane Morgan, second wife of railroad magnate Charles Morgan.
