A truly magnificent and 'perfect' stone has been unveiled to the world πŸ’Ž The 88.22-carat diamond is perfect according to every critical criterion: The diamond is graded D color (the highest grade for a white diamond), Flawless (exceptional clarity both internally and externally), Type IIa (most chemically pure with little if any nitrogen), and cut in oval from a 242-carat rough stone mined in Botswana.

The double-eights in the carat weight may hold extra significance to buyers of Asian heritage. Eight is considered a lucky number, and “88” is believed to bring good fortune in abundance. It is expected to fetch at least $11M when it goes to auction on April 2nd. 

Patti Wong noted that the perfect 88.22-carat diamond is a “summary of everything: A wonder of nature, a masterpiece resulting from man’s ability to shape the hardest material on earth into an object of ultimate beauty and the most concentrated form of wealth, as stated by Pliny the Elder almost 2,000 years ago.”
