Welcome to our exclusive Auction Analysis for Sotheby‘s The Vivid: 21.46 event. In a departure from our customary approach, this online auction requires us to explore the offerings without our traditional visual asset rankings, adapting our analysis based on the auction’s images.

Members who read this analysis should see it as a supplement to the GIA report. 

For your convenience, we have added direct links to diamonds’ GIA reports, FCRF rarity stats, and the Diary report landing page to explore everything you need to know about this fancy color diamond.

  • The images in this analysis were taken by Sotheby‘s
  • The auction valuation is per-carat and listed in US Dollars.
This analysis reflects the opinions of the FCRF professional team. It does not constitute a recommendation to buy or not buy a particular diamond. Buyers assume the responsibility of verifying any information with the auction house. At times, mistakes can happen in the visual analysis and report placement. Therefore, one should not rely solely on this analysis for buying purposes.

Description: 21.46 ct, Fancy Vivid Yellow, modified brilliant-cut, VS1. Rarity, GIA

Analysis: A 21.46-carat vivid yellow radiant-cut with a traditional facet alignment that results in a large colorless frame around the table. However, it does feature a favorable 66% depth. The face-up of this 21.46-carat diamond appears approximately 2% larger in relation to its weight. Diamonds with similar characteristics enter the market only 1 to 3 times every year.
