An 813-carat diamond called The Constellation just fetched $63.1 million at auction, which amounts to $77,647 per carat – the highest ever achieved for a rough diamond, according to CNBC. However, the article points out, that record may be short-lived, as another monstrous and super-rare Type IIa diamond called Leseda La Roni is scheduled to go on sale on June 29. Leseda La Roni weighs in at 1,109 carats, making it the world’s largest diamond in existence today. Sotheby’s expects it to sell for a figure north of $70 million.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
