By Macrogers


At the Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auction in Geneva, Switzerland  on November 12th this year one can witness the gleam and fiery sparkle of a pear shape 14.82 carat vivacious orange diamond, which is touted to be the “world’s largest fancy diamond”. These radiant orange diamonds, also referred to as “Fire diamonds” by the prominent gemologists Edwin Streeter in his book “The Great Diamonds of the World” (1882), are said to be exceptionally rare in natural world. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), who graded this diamond, have issued a report stating that “Strongly colored diamonds in the orange hue range, seldom exceed 3 or 4 carats in size when polished and this diamond is nearly four times larger than that size range”. This scintillating rock is estimated to fetch a colossal sum of about $ 17 million to $20 million. Other note worthy jewels that are said to be the highlights of this mega auction are a Van Cleef and Arpels Magnolia broach, which is estimated to fetch a colossal sum of about $ 250,000, a 100 carat emerald and diamond necklace by Cartier, with an estimated amount of $ 10 million, an extraordinary Burmese ruby and colored diamond 5.09 carat oval-shaped ring, with an estimated value of $ 1.6 million to $ 2.8 million and a Van Cleef and Arpels diamond and emerald earrings, which is estimated to fetch a colossal sum of about $ 380,000 to $ 570,000.
