AK "ALROSA" establishes cooperation with auction houses Christie's and Sotheby's
Auction house Christie's on May 14 at auction in Geneva sold a ring with a diamond weighing 846,958 carats, made by the cutting department of ALROSA, for 17,34 thousand dollars.
This 17,34 carat diamond is round, H-color and VS1 clarity. It has been certified by the GIA Gemological Institute of America. The diamond from which the diamond was made was mined by ALROSA - with a link to the Christie's website, YASIA reports.
Its starting preliminary estimate was determined by the seller at 570 thousand dollars. This is the first diamond that a subsidiary of the diamond mining company, Diamonds ALROSA, sold at Christie's.
The other largest auction house - Sotheby's - ALROSA signed a memorandum of cooperation last year. This helped the Russian company to sell 6 stones with a total value of more than $ 1 million.
