An Internally Flawless Vivid Pink Diamond Is The Star of The Hong Kong Auction

sothebys2Sotheby’s Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Autumn Sale will be held in Hong Kong on October 7. The most exciting piece of the auction this year will be a 8.41ct pink diamond that has breathtaking specs: It’s fancy vivid color, the most rare color grade for a color diamond, and its clarity is internally flawless, a virtually unseen grade for a fancy vivid or fancy intense pink diamond of this size. The diamond was mined by De Beers as an over 18ct rough stone, and finally cutting was done in New York.
Pink diamonds have held a special place throughout the history: the Williamson presented to Queen Elizabeth II at her wedding, the Hortense from the Crown Jewels of France, the Darya-i-Nur from the Iranian Crown Jewels to name a few. The Graff Pink is the star of modern ages, with the current record price ever paid at auction for a diamond, or any gemstone, at $46,158,674. A 24.76ct fancy intense pink diamond, the Graff Pink was sold in 2010 at Sotheby’s Geneva.

The new star, a 8.41ct pear shape pink diamond, is estimated to sell for $12.8 – 15.4 Million. The stone will be displayed in Singapore, Taipei, New York, London, Geneva and Hong Kong before the auction.
