This exemplary diamond boasts an impressive combination of perfect color and clarity — a pairing that even the most experienced diamantaire covets. While pear-shaped diamonds can be technically challenging to cut, this 2.28 carat stunner is notable for its especially well-balanced proportions. The refined teardrop shape is a marriage of the marquise cut and the round brilliant cut, with big, bold facets on one end and a concentrated sparkle on the other. It’s a timeless, feminine cut that’s been used on several historically important stones, including the Cullinan I — one of the stars of the British crown jewels.
All of the diamonds included in this very special sale are being offered with no Buyer’s Premium — a tremendous value for these truly invaluable gems.
Accompanied by GIA report no. 1142528069 dated April 24, 2012 stating that the diamond is D color, Internally Flawless.
