A flawless diamond, the size of a large strawberry, is up for auction at Sotheby’s in London this month.
Weighing just over 102 carats, the round, brilliant white stone is smaller than a 163-carat oval diamond sold in Hong Kong in 2013, which currently holds the record price per carat.
The diamond is expected to reach a world record price.
The diamond is the only stone over 100 carats to have been given the highest grades in every criteria by the Gemological Institute of America, which judges a precious stone’s quality, Sotheby’s said.
It has not disclosed the asking price for the stone, which will be sold in a private sale.
