De Beers Millennium 4 diamond fetches $32m

The De Beers Millennium 4 diamond, a 10.10-carat, oval, Internally Flawless, Fancy Vivid blue diamond sold at action today for $32million at Sotheby’s Hong Kong.

Its price tag is due to the combination of rarity and quality that saw the stone included in the prestigious Millennium collection in the first place.

The Millennium Jewel 4 is the largest oval fancy, internally flawless, vivid blue diamond ever to appear at auction.

It was part of the Millennium Jewels collection, unveiled by De Beers in 2000 to commemorate the millennium, and displayed at London’s Millennium Dome.

The Millennium Jewel 4 is the largest oval fancy vivid blue diamond ever to appear at auction. The amazing stone originates from South Africa’s renowned Cullinan Mine.

“Highly saturated blue diamonds over 10 carats combined with an Internally Flawless clarity grade are extremely rare,” says Tom Moses, the GIA’s executive vice president and chief research and laboratory officer.
