AUCTION-JEWELLERY-DIAMOND-INDIA:Indian diamond fetches $21.5 mln at auction
The rare, colourless stone weighing 76.02 carats once belonged to Archduke Joseph August of Austria (1872-1962), a prince of the Hungarian line of the Habsburgs. Its pre-sale estimate was 15 million Swiss francs to 25 million Swiss francs.
The diamond was the star lot at Christie's semi-annual jewellery sale in Geneva, where more than 300 lots were on the block.
