The 204.36-carat “Dancing Sun”

The Dancing Sun, a 204-carat fancy gem, is the largest polished diamond that ever mined in North America. This magnificent yellow diamond made its public appearance in Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auction on June 8. 

The Dancing Sun, one of nature’s true wonders carries a pre-sale high estimate of $3.5 million to $5.5 million. This was one of the cuts from the rough diamond weighing 552.74 carats. At a very first glance, the “552” represents a frosty surface and distinctive bi-color transition from intense yellow to nearly white. The cushion modified brilliant-cut gem boasts a clarity grade of VVS2, as well as excellent polish and symmetry. It was the second-largest diamond that was mined in Diavik North America after the 187.66 carats Foxfire in 2018. The dancing sun, no other names deserve this magnificent natural treasure.

Other six smaller cuts from the “552” ranging from 14.52 to 1.06 carats, and are also included in the auction. The auction also includes different gemstones, and jewels from different jewellery designers such as zchlumberger for Tiffany, Belperron, Bulgari, Cartier, Hemmerle and Van Cleef & Arpels.
