The well-known auction house Sotheby's will be putting two flawless white diamonds up for auction during the Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels events in Geneva on May 15, 2018.




Each legendary diamond specimen weighs over 50 carats, and both are estimated to fetch a combined price of over 15 million dollars. Apart from Christie's, Sotheby's is most likely one of the most well-known auction names in the world today, managing the sale of world-record diamonds and jewelry owned by famous personalities throughout history.

This follows the company's sale of a 102.34 ct. diamond last February 8 and 9 at the New Bond Street Salon. This particular stone set for sale at Sotheby’s retail store in London is the largest Type IIa, D-color, flawless, round brilliant cut diamond over 100 carats to ever be put on record.



The two-diamond suite was unveiled in London at a preview event on April 6 for the company's clientele. It was also noted as of recent news, that Sotheby's had just sold a 102.34 carat white diamond during one of its private sales, though no names were revealed regarding the final buyer. The current standing record for a white diamond is $260,252 per carat according to their database.

It's no easy feat to find gigantic stones at these quality levels, even for established mining companies, so when news arrives, it spreads like wildfire and the entire connoisseur community starts to buzz with guesses on who would be the eventual owner of such grand natural treasures.
