Fancy colour diamonds light up auctions

A 15.48-carat fancy colour diamond, known as the Pink Supreme, was the headline act at the most recent Christie’s jewellery auction in Hong Kong, returning a hefty sum.

Yellow beauty

An unmounted 133-carat yellow diamond will be the star of the show at an upcoming Sotheby’s jewellery auction in New York.

The cushion-modified brilliant-cut fancy vivid yellow diamond is expected to return $US5 million ($AU7.49 million) at the 5 December auction.

The auction will also include the sale of 21 items from the collection of US actress Mary Tyler Moore.

Proceeds from that sale will go to The Mary Tyler Moore Initiative, a charity dedicated to combatting health issues experienced by people with diabetes.
