 In celebration of its 40th anniversary in Asia, Sotheby’s Hong Kong proudly presents The Premier Blue, a 7.59-Carat Round Brilliant-Cut Internally Flawless (IF) Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond (Estimate upon request) - The Largest Round Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond Ever Graded By GIA (Gemological Institute of America) - as part of its Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite auction scheduled to take place on 7 October at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The round brilliant cut is rarely used in coloured diamonds due to the high wastage involved in the cutting process, although it is widely applied to white diamonds to maximise its brilliance. No significant round Fancy Vivid blue diamond has ever appeared at auction worldwide thus making the The Premier Blue a rare and exceptional gem. The Premier Blue, of substantial size, round brilliant cut, Fancy Vivid blue colour grading and Internally Flawless clarity, embodies the best and rarest attributes of a blue diamond. The Premier Blue will be previewed around Asia as well as in Geneva, London, New York and Doha before the auction.

QUEK Chin Yeow, Deputy Chairman, Asia, and Chairman International Jewellery, Asia, said, “Sotheby’s has been entrusted with many important blue diamonds and holds the current per-carat price record for Fancy Vivid blue diamond at auction (with the sale of a 6.01-carat Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond which achieved US$1,686,505 per carat in Hong Kong in October 2011). This autumn we are thrilled to offer The Premier Blue, an unusually beautiful and rare treasure of round brilliant cut as well as Internally Flawless clarity. No round Fancy Vivid blue diamond of significance has ever appeared at auction. The Premier Blue, weighing 7.59 carats, is the world’s largest round Fancy Vivid blue diamond to appear at auction as well as the largest one ever graded by GIA. A befitting celebration of Sotheby’s 40th anniversary in Asia, the debut appearance of such a rare Fancy Vivid blue diamond as The Premier Blue at auction offers an unprecedented collecting opportunity for connoisseurs worldwide.”

THE PREMIER BLUE - THE LARGEST ROUND FANCY VIVID BLUE DIAMOND EVER GRADED BY GIA
Weighing 7.59 carats and of a splendid, even and saturated pure blue hue, The Premier Blue is the world’s largest round Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond graded by GIA to date. It embodies the best possible attributes to be found in a blue diamond: Fancy Vivid colour grading, the highest for a coloured diamond; Internally Flawless (IF) indicating the most desirable clarity; an impressive weight of 7.59 carats and the elegant round brilliant cut. Destined to become one of the world’s most famous blue diamonds, The Premier Blue is a most becoming tribute to Sotheby’s 40th anniversary in Asia.

MAGNIFICENT JEWELS AND JADEITE
In addition to The Premier Blue, this season’s auction of Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite in Hong Kong will highlight a selection of jewels that epitomise the glamour of some of the most stylish personalities of the old and new worlds – from royalty to the celebrated Asian jewellery designer Cindy Chao. This distinguished selection will be complemented by highly sought-after jewellery, from important pink, yellow and colourless diamonds, fabulous Burmese rubies, Colombian emeralds and Kashmir sapphires, to splendid natural pearls and the finest jadeite. Altogether this sale will offer approximately 330 lots estimated to achieve in excess of HK$600 million / US$80 million.
