The Beau Sancy is a unique pear-shaped diamond in that it is double-sided with a symmetrical crown and pavilion. Both sides feature a rose cut, resulting in the appearance of a small flower in the center of the stone.
The Beau Sancy was found in India and brought to France by Ambassador Nicolas de Harlay, Lord of Sancy, for whom the stone is named. The stone was gifted to the queen of France, Marie de Medicis and was later acquired by the Dutch royal family—King William III and Queen Mary II—who passed it on to Frederick I of Prussia in 1701.
The diamond is currently privately owned by an anonymous buyer who acquired the stone for $9.57 million at a Sotheby’s auction in 2012.
The Stonecutter creates Beau Sancy replicas based on the well-documented description provided by Bertrand Morel in The French Crown Jewels (1988). You can acquire this stone for your personal collection for less than you may imagine. Order your replica online or contact us with your questions.
