Sotheby’s Geneva will offer the “Walska Briolette Diamond Brooch,” created by Van Cleef & Arpels in 1971, during its magnificent jewels sale on November 13. This masterpiece design highlights the historic “Walska Briolette Diamond” that weighs 96.62 carats and was graded as a fancy vivid yellow, and it is priced to sell at $8 million.
This special stone was once in the collection of opera singer and jewelry connoisseur Ganna Walska, but the briolette diamond was subsequently mounted as a brooch and most recently exhibited at Van Cleef & Arpels retrospectives. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) described the briolette as a natural, fancy vivid yellow diamond and assigned a VS2 clarity grade.
