LARGEST Diamond for Auction at Sotheby’s: 84.37 Carats!

84 carat diamondThe largest top quality diamond that Sotheby’s has ever had up for auction is causing quite a stir! The diamond is a round brilliant cut weighing 84.37 carats and is the highest color D and is Internally Flawless. In addition, cut, polish and symmetry have all been graded as Excellent! The diamond is being auctioned off in Geneva next month and is expected to go for $12 million up to $16 million! According to Fort Lauderdales’ Sun-Sentinel the diamond will be on display in Hong Kong, Paris, New York, Rome, Los Angeles, London, Dubai and Bahrain before the auction on November 12th.

But in reality guys….what do you think will happen to this diamond? Good luck in finding a match for that fabulous diamond stud earring set you always wanted. The ring thing just won’t work…talk about a headlight!

And, I cant’ really see it as a necklace….just too big. So short of ending up in some museum, our best guess is some wealthy guy is going to buy it and just show it off to all his rich buddies.

If this was MY diamond I would have it set in a tiara so I could wear it all day long without getting hurt!

Tell me what you would do with this diamond if it was yours!

    Tiara…hmmm…but then that means I won’t be able to use it everyday.

    I would place it in a 18 Kt and Plt setting as a man’s braclet.

    i wouldnt do a thing to it, i would hold onto it cause its more of an asset un-set, although having that set in a platinum mens bracelet would be pretty irresistable

    I would sell it, and use the 16 million to try and help someone in this good earth, full of filth

    W..e..l..l – phew! I’d keep it if I could afford it and look at it every day. It would be put in a safe of course. A platinum setting ring would be absolutely sublime.
    I can dream can’t I. The diamond is my birthstone after all.
    Can I have it? (ha-ha)

    Sell it and build a free medical clinic in the country from which it came. Besides that a 60 year old guy like me would look silly wearing a tiara.

    Just like me, living as usual. As I do own many large diamond but of course smaller than this 84ct piece. But I just keep them as collection.

    Who says its too big for a ring or necklace? I’d find a diamond slightly smaller and have it set in platinum with blue pave diamonds on the sides and have it made into a necklace set in platinum surrounded with blue diamonds. or maybe pink diamonds? If I was that rich I’d do both.

    (if i was very rich)
    I’d buy 10 of them,
    turn 2 into gold rings
    2 in to bracelets
    2 into 2 seperate necklaces
    1 in to a luxurious gold crown
    3 into toe rings.
