Shirt-button sized blue diamond is estimated to fetch a record per-carat price at Sotheby’s

Sotheby’s is back again in Honk Kong for auction, but this time with an even bigger and enthralling piece of a rarity – a 7.59-carat blue diamond, the size of a shirt button. You’d wonder what’s so enthralling about this piece after having set eyes on the ‘Star of Josephine’ and the blue diamond Bvlgari ring. It’s the size of this precious stone that matters, and not everyone gets to own such a beauty. Moreover, you’d be glad to know that this Premier Blue is the largest ever round diamond graded by GIA. It’s unique in itself. Another known fact about the Premier Blue diamond is that it has been estimated to bring in $19 million, which would be a world record per-carat price for any diamond.

This rare beauty would be auctioned on October 7 at the Magnificent Jewels auction by Sotheby’s in Hong Kong. You might want to try your luck this time!
