202ct. Yellow Diamond to Take Spotlight at Christie’s

Christie’s is set to offer a 202.18-carat yellow diamond at its upcoming Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva, only the third of its color over 200 carats to appear at auction.

The unmounted pear modified brilliant-cut, fancy-intense-yellow, SI1-clarity stone originated from South Africa, Christie’s said last week. Known as The Yellow Rose, the diamond, which exhibits a medium-blue fluorescence, will lead the May 15 sale, where it is expected to fetch more than CHF 4 million ($4.4 million).

The stone is one of several high-value jewels in the auction, which features pieces from well-known design houses including Buccellati, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, and JAR, Christie’s noted.
