A diamond as large as an egg? Yes, that’s correct. It’s also flawless.

Renowned auction house, Sotheby’s, is expecting to shatter white diamond sale records on October 7th in Hong Kong, when this 118-carat, flawless-colored diamond goes up for sale. Currently on display in Sotheby’s in New York, the massive stone has been cut into an oval shape, and is reported to be approximately the size of an egg. Sotheby’s is reportedly calling it ‘the greatest white diamond ever to appear at auction.’

“This figure will exceed the current white diamond sale record ($27 million), set at Christie’s Geneva location in May. That stone, cut in a pear shape, weighed approximately 101 carats and was purchased by Harry Winston. At a media preview on Wednesday evening, representatives for Sotheby’s said that the diamond is expected to fetch between $28 and $35 million.”

Sotheby’s diamond was mined in Southern Africa in 2011 from a rough stone that was measured at around 299 carats, reports trade publication Jewelers Circular Keystone.
Whoever purchases the massive stone will also win over its naming rights.

The diamond will be auctioned alongside this internally flawless, 7.59-carat ‘fancy vivid’ blue diamond, as part of Sotheby’s 40th anniversary celebration in Asia.

The Premier Blue, as its been named, is expected to catch more than $19 million at auction.
