The largest-ever D-flawless diamond to be put up for auction, mounted in a diamond and emerald necklace, sold for $33.7 million Tuesday night, including buyer's fees.

But some had expected The Art of Grisogono, which Christie's described as a "masterpiece of unparallelled beauty and exquisite workmanship", to fetch even more.
The necklace is made of 18 diamonds on one side and two rows of pear-shaped emeralds on the other.
Previously, Christie's set an auction record in May 2016 with the sale of a 14.62-carat diamond known as the "Oppenheimer Blue" for $50.6m (£34.7m).
