12 million for one oval





A large 88-carat oval diamond will be auctioned at Sotheby’s ♦ ︎

Lovers of large gemstones have a date to mark on the calendar: 2 April. On that day, in Hong Kong, Sotheby’s will put an oval diamond defined as “perfect according to each criterion”. It is, in fact, a stone not common: it is an oval diamond of type IIa of 88.22 carats, color D. The diamond was made from a raw stone of 242 carats mined in the De Beers mine, in Jwaneng, in Botswana. The stone is valued between 11.2 and 12.7 million dollars.

A curious aspect is that the sale in Hong Kong also has a superstitious reason.

The stone weighs 88 carats and the number eight in Asia is considered lucky: it is also a symbol of perfection and eternity. A double 8 is therefore considered a super lucky charm. Last year, in April 2018, Sotheby sold a 102.34 carat white diamond, but without communicating the price. And two impeccable D-type diamonds of color D, weighing 51.71 carats and 50.39 carats, were sold in Geneva for $ 9.3 million and $ 8.1 million.
