|At 14.82 carats, the largest fancy vivid orange diamond known sold at auction for more than $35.5 million at Christie’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels sale in 2013.|
It set a world record for a fancy vivid orange diamond. At $2,398,151 per carat, it also set a then world record price per carat for any colored diamond sold at auction.
|There was no question that the diamond, simply called “The Orange,” was going to fetch a record price.|
It is believed to be the world’s largest orange diamond by a large margin. It is three times larger than the two other known large orange diamonds: The 5.54-carat “Pumpkin Diamond,” which was sold privately, and a 4.19 carat fancy vivid orange diamond sold at auction for a record price of $2.95 million in October 2011.
