The world’s largest pear-shaped fancy vivid yellow diamond, weighing 110.03 carats, was the top lot at Sotheby’s semi-annual jewellery sale in Geneva on Tuesday night which netted a total of $70.17 million. The yellow diamond was discovered in South Africa last year and cut and polished by New York-based Cora International which put it up for sale, Sotheby’s said. The stone had a pre-sale estimate of $11-15 million. The buyer is a private individual who wished to remain anonymous.
