On May 13th in Geneva, the Graff Vivid Yellow diamond will be auctioned off. It is 100.9 ct and named after for the famed diamond collector Laurence Graff.
It is considered one of the largest vivid yellow diamonds in the world and should fetch between $15 and $20 million.
Also at the auction will be a Graff diamond ring which features a 103.46 ct round brillian cut. It is considered one of the largest diamonds in the world and is expected to bring in between $3.5 and $5 million.
Another item at the auction is the Victory Diamond. It is a 31.34 ct D Type IIA step cut and was named in honor of the Allies’ triumph in World War II. It was originally discovered in 1945 and at the time was the largest alluvial rough ever found, weighing in at 770 cts.
In the 1950s, 30 diamonds were cut from that rough. The Victory Diamond was the biggest of these cuts– it is considered potentially flawless and should bring in around $5 million to $8 million.
