When this brilliant sky-blue colored diamond made its appearance in the fascinating realm of natural color diamonds last month, it was expected to fetch around $5.8 million. However, this exclusive rarity comfortably exceeded the top price estimate but fell short of the 2009 record. Once part of the legendary De Beers Millennium collection, the 5.16 carat, pear-shaped internally flawless Fancy Vivid Blue gem is the first diamond of its kind to appear at any auction.
