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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
