A diamond called ‘The Orange’, is being offered by Christie’s Geneva at its magnificent jewels sale on November 12. The diamond is described as the largest fancy vivid orange diamond ever to appear for sale at an auction. The stone is a rare pear-shaped,14.82-carat, VS1, type IIa, vivid orange diamond. It will lead the auction and carries a pre-sale estimate of $17 million to $20 million.

The Gemological institute of America (GIA) had recently declared that, “In the Laboratory’s experience, strongly coloured diamonds in the orange hue range rarely exceed three or four carats in size when polished. This diamond is almost four times larger than that size range. In GIA’s colored diamond grading system, as the color appearance of strongly colored diamonds transitions from orangy yellow to orange the occurrence becomes progressively more rare, that is, the less yellow present the more rarely they occur.”

Rahul Kadakia, Head of Jewellery, Christie’s Switzerland and Americas said, “ With the magnificent Patino emerald suite and diamond ring, the Princess Faiza emerald drop necklace by Van Cleef & Arples, the stylish jewels of Madam Helene Rochas, a Princely Art Deco emerald and diamond sautoir by Cartier, a royal natural pearl necklace, and the largest Vivid Orange diamond in the world, Christie’s Geneva id proud to offer collectors the best of the best in the world of jewellery on November 12”. The sale features over 280 lots with rarest gems, period and signed jewels and Royal treasures.
