Pink di­a­mond to fetch £ 37m at auc­tion

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS -

Apink di­a­mond is ex­pected to fetch more than £ 37 mil­lion at auc­tion. The sparkler looks set to be the prici­est sparkler in the world if it breaks the £ 28.5 mil­lion record, which was set by the Graff Pink di­a­mond in 2010, when it goes on sale at Sotheby’s auc­tion in Geneva, Switzer­land.

David Ben­nett, chair­man of Sotheby’s Euro­pean di­vi­sion, said: “It is dif­fi­cult to ex­ag­ger­ate the rar­ity of vivid pink di­a­monds weigh­ing only five carats, so this 59.60 carat stone is sim­ply off the scale, and passes, I be­lieve, into the ranks of the earth’s great­est nat­u­ral trea­sures.

“You can’t take your eyes off it.”
