Jerry Hall Holding The 110 ct Vivid Yellow Diamond

The 110-carat vivid yellow Cora Sun-Drop diamond is on loan to the Natural History Museum in London and the museum decided to promote it with a photo shoot with former model Jerry Hall.  The unusual gem, the largest vivid yellow pear-shape diamond, belongs to Cora International.



The Cora Sun-Drop was mined in Africa and polished by Cora International, a company that specializes in very large and fancy color diamonds.

The diamond is on display until August this year.

    Hi Ryan, thank you for the information. I think the Sarah diamond still holds the record. If you have any other information I would appreciate it if you can update me. Thank you.

  2. Actually the Sarah Diamond, 132 carats, is the largest fancy vivid yellow. Or at least it was a few years ago. I don’t know if it still holds the record.
