Orange / yellow Orange one of the rarest colours found in natural diamond.
In 2014 a spectacular orange fancy vivid pear shape diamond mined in South Africa, weighing 14.82 carats was auctioned for a record price of $2.39 million per carat or $35.54m for the diamond. Setting a new record price per carat for any fancy colour.
The 1.03 ct Intense Fancy yellow Orange Round brilliant is made rarer because of the combination of the size, shape, colour and clarity.
Shapiro’s Auctioneers will auction the diamond at the May 13 Jewellery sale.
