101-Carat Diamond Gets Its Name

by

The rare, 101.27-carat diamond sold at Christie’s spring 2008 Hong Kong auction is now known as “The Shizuka Diamond,” Christie’s announced on Thursday.

The giant stone’s owner selected the name as a gift for his wife of 16 years.

The Shizuka diamond netted $6.2 million at “Jewels: The Hong Kong Sale” in May 2008 and is the largest colorless diamond ever sold at auction in Asia.
