What is the most expensive diamond per carat in the world?
In Hong Kong in 2007 the record
for selling the most expensive diamond per carat in the world was set.
The diamond was sold at Sotheby
auction house and is blue in color with precision details and cut.
The auction was held on October 8,
2007, and bidding only lasted for eight minutes, and was competitively fierce.
The winning bidder of the diamond was Moussaieff Jewellers from London, who won
the diamond with the highest bid of $7.98 million dollars USD.
The diamond’s weight clocks in at
6.04 carats, with a retail value of approximately $1.32 million USD per carat.
This diamond beats out the famous
“Hancock Red” diamond, the previous world record setter that sold back in 1987
for a scant $926,000 per carat.
The only diamond that might rival
this one in value is the largest diamond in the world, which clocks in a weight
of 45.52 carats. This of course is the infamous Hope Diamond, and will never be
