Purchased at the Geneva auction at Christie’s on May 15, 2014,  the magnificent pear-shaped stone has been described as the largest of kind.

Following the acquisition, Nayla Hayek, CEO of Harry Winston said, “Harry Winston always had an eye for the exceptional. It is what led him to acquire some of the most famous and greatest jewels that have ever been discovered, and what earned him his place as the King of Diamonds. When he founded the company in 1932, he started with the motto ‘Rare Jewels of the World.’ With the acquisition of the Winston Blue diamond, as well as the flawless 101-carat Winston Legacy diamond last year, we can say with confidence that this is no longer just the history of the House, it is also our future.”
