Christie’s to auc­tion pink di­a­mond

The Korea Times - - WORLD - GENEVA (AP)

— Christie’s puts un­der the ham­mer next week the largest fancy vivid pink di­a­mond that the famed auc­tion house has ever sold, ex­pect­ing to fetch $30 mil­lion to $50 mil­lion for the nearly 19-carat, rect­an­gu­lar-cut gem­stone.

The “Pink Legacy” will be the stand­out of­fer­ing at Christie’s fall jewelry auc­tion in Geneva on Tues­day.

The stone once be­longed to the Op­pen­heimer di­a­mond fam­ily, and Christie’s says it qual­i­fies as a Type IIa di­a­mond — the most chem­i­cally pure stones with lit­tle if any ni­tro­gen.
