Purchased in the early 2000s by Israeli-born jewelry dealer Shlomo Moussaieff, the Moussaieff Red Diamond (formerly known as the Red Shield Diamond) is a Fancy Red that measures 5.11 carats with a triangular brilliant cut. It is the world's largest known red diamond, worth an estimated $7 million dollars. This red wonder is among the top ten most expensive diamonds in the world!
Although this diamond’s history is relatively uneventful – discovered in the 1990s by a Brazilian farmer in the Abaetezinho River, then purchased and cut by the William Goldberg Diamond Corporation - The Moussaieff Red Diamond still manages to capture and enthrall by its sheer beauty and extravagance.
