“The world’s largest flawless diamond – valued at $15 million – has gone on display at Sotheby’s Dubai.
The Golden Canary pear-shaped yellow diamond weighs 303.10 carats, making it the largest flawless diamond in the world, according to the Gemological Institute of America.
The unique stone is making its debut in Dubai ahead of its world tour in Sotheby’s galleries.
After being on display on Dubai, it will travel to Taipei, Hong Kong and Geneva before arriving in New York for its sale on December 7 as part of the Sotheby’s New York Magnificent Jewels sale.
Valued at about $15 million by Sotheby’s, when it goes under the hammer it will be without a reserve price — meaning it will sell for whatever the highest price is on the day.
It is now on display at the Sotheby’s Dubai gallery in DIFC.
The Golden Canary joins the list of historically important stones that have been exhibited in Dubai.”
