Largest Diamond of It’s Kind Fetches Over $33 Million.

A diamond necklace featuring a flawless 163-carat diamond – the largest of its kind to be auctioned – has fetched  $33.5million at a Christie’s event in Geneva.   ‘The Art of de Grisogono,’ as it’s known,  is made from white gold, diamonds and emeralds and  designed by Swiss jewelry maker de Grisogono.    It sold for $33.5m, that is  $29.5m plus $4m premium – exceeding pre sale predictions from auctioneer Christie’s of a price of about $30m.

The piece took over  1,700 hours to make, Christie’s said. The colourless diamond was taken from a 404-carat stone found in Angola.
