The Meister

The Meister Diamond is a cushion-shaped stone of 118.00 carats and was last sold in Zurich on April 24th, 1970. The stone's description simply lists it as being "of a fancy color", though which color grade it received is unclear. The stone sold for the astonishingly low figure of 160,000 Swiss francs, which at the time was equal to $36,967 US or 15,403. Its facet pattern is in the same vein of the Regent, Tiffany Yellow and Koh-I-Noor Diamonds: It is a stellar brilliant cut with eight extra facets pointing outward from the culet facet. The diamond's current whereabouts are unknown.
