While last month, there was lot of commotion on the sale of the world’s largest brilliant-cut D-color flawless diamond that was set for ‘Magnificent Jewels’ auction at Sotheby’s in Geneva. And today the big day has come when the diamond got sold for £7.8 million to George Marciano, the founder of Guess Jeans.
At more than 84.37 carats, this is the world’s largest and purest round or brilliant cut diamond to be sold at an auction. Graded as D-Color, the diamond fetched £93,800 a carat. Marciano plans to call it Chloe Diamond after his daughter. Millionaires do take pleasure in watching the lire of some matchless stones. The most expensive stone ever sold at auction was the 100.10 carat Star of the Season diamond, which went for £8.25million in May 1995.
