A superlative group of eight rare Fancy Blue diamonds will be sold across Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels auctions this year in New York, Geneva, Hong Kong, and in the Spring of 2023.
The splendid hues, even colour distribution and saturation of these diamonds form one of the rarest and most notable collections of coloured diamonds in the world.
The diamonds in The De Beers Exceptional Blue Collection were expertly sourced and assembled by De Beers, the global leader in the sourcing and curation of natural diamonds.
The blue diamonds were then crafted into works of art by Diacore’s world-class cutters and polishers.
Appearing at auction for the first time, The De Beers Exceptional Blue Collection comes to the market with a combined total value of more than $70 million.
“The magnificent De Beers Exceptional Blue Collection stands as testament to De Beers’ unique ability to source the rarest diamonds in the world, and the patience and foresight required to assemble a collection that transcends rarity and can only be called remarkable.”Bruce Cleaver, CEO of De Beers Group
