A rare, pear-shaped, vivid pink diamond known as the Unique Pink will go under the hammer in Geneva on May 17th, where auctioneers expect it to fetch $38 million.
The “Unique Pink”, described by Sotheby’s as “supremely rare and exceptional”, weighs 15.38 carats.
“It is difficult to imagine a diamond that better illustrates the term vivid pink than this outstanding stone,” said David Bennett, worldwide chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division. “The color is simply astonishing, and, for its size, it is in my experience truly unique.”
“The Gemological Institute of America, the highest body for grading diamonds, have given this stone their highest possible grading, which is vivid pink,” Bennett stated.
Earlier this week, a 10.10 carat oval, internally flawless, fancy vivid blue diamond sold for $31.8 million at an auction held by Sotheby’s in Hong Kong.
The stone will be on exhibit in London (April 8–12) and New York (April 15–19) prior to the auction.
