RARE BLUE DIAMOND SELLS FOR RECORD $48.5 MILLION AT AUCTION - Sotheby’s says a rare blue diamond has sold for a record 43.2 million Swiss francs ($48.5 million) at a Geneva auction, including fees. The 12.03-carat ‘Blue Moon’ Diamond is said to be among the largest known fancy vivid blue diamonds and was the showpiece gem at the auction. The price fell within the pre-auction estimate of $35 million - $55 million. Excluding fees, it sold for 43.2 million Swiss francs. The Blue Moon— whose name plays off the expression “once in a blue moon”— topped the previous record price of $46.2 million set five years ago by The Graff Pink. The polished blue gem was cut from a 29.6-carat diamond discovered last year in South Africa’s Cullinan mine, which also yielded the Star of Africa blue diamond in the British crown jewels. (316)
