Blue Diamond At Sotheby's

Sotheby's Hong Kong decided to sell this spring a unique and rare blue diamond of 5.16 carat, pear-shaped, internally perfect, part of the legendary De Beers' famed "Millennium Jewels Collection".

Quek Chin Yeow, deputy chairman and head of the jewelry department at Sotheby's Asia said: "This season, we are proud to present a superb 5.16-carat pear-shaped internally flawless fancy vivid blue diamond from an important private collection, one of the 11 magnificent blue diamonds formerly in the legendary De Beers Millennium Jewels Collection. It is an unprecedented opportunity to acquire at auction a gem with this unique historical provenance".

The diamond has been held in a private collection for a long time, is the first diamond of the Millennium collection that appears at auction. This phenomenal collection of 12 rare gems was made by De Beers in 2000 to celebrate the new millennium.

Blue diamonds are rare, and have been extracted from the Premier Diamond Mine in the Transvaal, South Africa, the main source of blue diamonds in the world.
