Flawless Fancy Vivid Blue diamond is renamed The Winston Blue and sets a new world record at Christies Geneva
In what is shaping up to be a record-breaking week, a 13.22 carat pear-shaped Fancy Vivid blue flawless diamond has sold at Christie’s Geneva for an impressive CHF 21.4 million ($24 million) – equivalent to almost $2 million per carat – setting a new world auction record for the price per carat for a blue diamond. Immediately after the sale, it was renamed ‘The Winston Blue’ by its new owner, Harry Winston.
The largest diamond of its kind in the world, it was named ‘The Winston Blue’ by Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston, who saw off competition from other bidders to acquire the gem.
