It’s a big week for the diamond industry. Why? Tomorrow, Sotheby’s will be holding its Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva, while the day after, rival Christie’s will be holding its Magnificent Jewels sale at the same location.

The former will feature the 100.09-carat Graff Vivid Yellow diamond and the latter will include a 13.22-carat blue diamond that is being hailed as the world’s largest flawless fancy vivid blue diamond.

To find out more about colored diamond auctions and about the blue stone from Christie’s in particular, Diamond Investing News got in touch with Yaniv Marcus, investment strategist at Leibish & Co., a supplier of natural fancy colored diamonds of all colors and sizes.

Take a look at the video below to see what he had to say.
