Record-Breaking Bulgari Blue Diamond Could Fetch $25 Million

A rare diamond dubbed the “Bulgari Laguna Blu” – a 11.16-carat pear-shaped gem certified as the highest grade blue diamond ever by the GIA – could sell for $25 million when at Sotheby’s Geneva later this month (May 16).


The gem, “destined to become the most valuable gem ever to be sold by Bulgari” according to IDEX Online, was bought  from Bulgari by a European collector in the 1970s and set in a ring.


Olivier Wagner, head of jewelry at Sotheby’s Geneva, commented that the “Bulgari Laguna Blu” is the third-largest pear-shaped Fancy Vivid blue diamond ever to come to auction, and that it is “an extraordinary gem in every way.”
