It’s hard to argue when Sotheby calls it Ultimate Emerald Cut Diamond with size of 100.2 ct. color D and internally flawless. Sotheby will auction Ultimate Emerald Cut on April 21st at Magnificent Jewels Sale in New York City; not very often we see a diamond of this size being auctioned.
Gary Schuler, head of the Sotheby’s jewelry department in New York said in a statement “The color is whiter than white, it is free of any internal imperfections, and so transparent that I can only compare it to a pool of icy water”. He describes this 100.2 ct. diamond as “the definition of perfection”
Lisa Hubbard, chairman of North & South America for Sotheby’s International Jewelry Division, said in a statement “It has everything you could ever want from a diamond. The classic shape begs to be worn, while the quality puts it in an asset class of its own”.
Originally mined by DeBeers in Southern Africa, when found it weighed more than 200 ct. in the rough. It took over one year for current owner to study, cut and polish it. Less than one percent of the world’s diamonds are Type IIa, and they are the most valuable of all diamonds.
Ultimate Emerald Cut is expected to fetch between $19 million and $25 million. The diamond will be exhibited in Dubai, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, London and Doha, before returning to New York for exhibition in April.
A 2.01 Ct. Yellow Diamond found!!
When fields get plowed, diamonds don’t usually pop up. That’s unless you’re visiting Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. That’s where Dean Filppula, an offshore steward from Shreveport, Louisiana, found a yellow 2.01-carat diamond last week.
It’s finders, keepers at the state park’s 37-acre search field, which is named for an ancient eruption that littered the area with gems. The area, which became a state park in 1972, is the only public site in the world where — for a small fee — you can dig for diamonds and keep them.
It was a lucky day for Mr. Dean Filppula, an offshore steward from Shreveport, LA who visited the park during vacation after a rainstorm. He found “wedge-shaped light yellow stone about the size of an English pea” in the West Drain area of the park. He is calling this 2.01 Ct diamond after his mother’s initials as “Merf Diamond”.
Park interpreter Wayman Cox says Mr. Filppula was at right place at right time. It rained heavily before his visit, which washed loose soil from surface uncovering the large yellow gem. His store is very familiar to many visitors in past who have found diamonds.
Mr. Filppula find is 20th diamond, but it is largest one found so far in 2015. He is planning to sell the diamond.
232 Carat D-Color Diamond Unearthed in South Africa
Petra Diamonds have unearthed an exceptional 232.08 carat white diamond at the Cullinan mine in South Africa which is expected to fetch between $10 million and $16 million.
The stone is a D colour Type II diamond with size of a strawberry and no measurable nitrogen impurities. “The diamond is practically see-through, so it is very likely to produce a flawless stone,” says Petra spokesperson Cathy Malins.
It has not been determined when the stone will be sold but the timing expected is in the second quarter of this financial year.
