The Infinite Blue

Hong Kong | 5 October 2023

Sotheby’s is delighted to present the Infinite Blue, a 11.28-carat Fancy Vivid Blue diamond. Designed as a ring embellished with brilliant-cut and trapeze-shaped diamonds, the Infinite Blue has a captivating hue that alludes to the vastness of the ocean. Originating from the legendary Cullinan mine, the discovery of the rough for the Infinite Blue was a momentous occasion. Only 0.1% of the total mining production can produce blue diamonds, irrespective of the strength of colour. The Blue Moon of Josephine, weighing 12 carats and found in the same mine in 2015 and set an auction per-carat price record of US$ 4 million at the time with Sotheby’s, a record that holds to this day. More recently a 15-carat De Beers Blue diamond was auctioned for more than US$57 million last year.

The Infinite Blue will tour around the world before an exhibition at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 2 to 5 October. Private viewings will be available upon request.
