The world’s most expensive diamond has gone on display in London ahead of an auction next month. It is expected to sell for more than $60 million.
The 59.6 carat Pink Star is by far the largest diamond of its kind ever found. The ovalcut stone, the largest internally flawless fancy vivid pink diamond ever graded, will be sold by Sotheby’s in Geneva on November 13.
Sotheby’s on Wednesday showed off a 59.6carat pink diamond that will be auctioned in the Swiss city of Geneva in November at a record asking price of $60 million.
“The Pink Star,” an internally flawless ovalcut vivid pink diamond, will become the most valuable diamond ever to be offered at auction, Sotheby’s said.
“I have had the privilege of examining some of the greatest gemstones in the world over the past 35 years, and I can say, without hesitation, that ‘The Pink Star’ diamond is of immense importance,” David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s jewellery division in Europe and the Middle East, said in a statement.
The largest fancy pink Golconda diamond ever to be offered for sale at auction will go up for bid this month.
The Princie Diamond – which will be auctioned 16 April by Christie’s New York – is a 34.65carat fancy intense pink cushioncut diamond whose origins can be traced back to the ancient mines of Golconda in south central India.
