Well if diamonds are a girl’s best friend then, the rare blue diamond that recently sold at a Sotheby’s auction for a jaw dropping $8.4 million USD, would certainly reach sister status.
The 7.03-carat gem was discovered last year in South Africa and has been graded highly for it’s vivid color and clarity. Shaped like a cushion and only slightly smaller than a dime it is one of only a few blue diamonds ever found.
David Bennet, head of jewelry for Sotheby’s Europe and Middle East stated “I was a little bit concerned in this market” When the majority of the dazzling rings, bracelets and necklaces on offer sold for almost 10 percent less than expected.
According to Bennet, the anonymous telephone bidder and proud owner of the most expensive diamond ever purchased, has yet to name the gem.
