Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s International Head of Jewellery, mentioned “The Rock will join the very best of legendary gemstones which have passed through Christie’s global salerooms since 1766. The market for diamonds is particularly vibrant and we are confident that this sensational gemstone will capture the attention of collectors across the globe this Spring season.”
The Rock is licensed by the Gemmological Institute of America as G color, VS1 readability, and comes with a letter from the GIA stating that it’s the largest current D-Z color pear-shaped diamond ever graded by the laboratory. The earlier public sale file for the most important white diamond was a 163.41 carat gem that offered for US$33,701,000 at Christie’s Geneva in November 2017.
The Rock can be unveiled at Christie’s Dubai from the twenty sixth to the twenty ninth of March, earlier than touring to Taipei and Rockefeller Plaza in New York from the twenty ninth to the first of May. This distinctive diamond will then be on show to the general public throughout Christie’s Luxury Week, which runs from the sixth to the eleventh of May at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva.
