Christie’s Sets All-Time Auction Record as a 13 Carat Blue garners $24 Million.
The sale of the 13.22 carat rock known simply as ‘The Blue’ came a day after Sotheby’s sold a 100-carat flawless yellow diamond for $16.3 million — with both sales including commission.
The US jeweller Harry Winston bought the blue diamond, described by Christie’s as the largest fancy vivid blue diamond in the world, from an anonymous seller.
The company plans to rename the 13.22-carat pear-shaped rock The Winston Blue.
