According to Grib Diamonds, buyers were offered about 6,000 carats of diamonds. Auction lots included stones weighing 10.8 carats and above. Among those put on the block, three diamonds totally weighing more than 400 carats brought in almost USD 8 million, with one of them 186 carats in size fetching USD 3.7 million, which made it the most expensive diamond ever sold by Grib Diamonds.
