Sotheby’s Spring sale of Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels will be led by the spectacular “Unique Pink”, a supremely rare and exceptional Fancy Vivid Pink diamond weighing 15.38 carats. In addition to receiving the highest possible colour grading for a pink diamond from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the “Unique Pink” has been found to be Type IIa, displaying “exceedingly pure structure”. The stone’s exquisite pear shape and brilliant cut accentuate its exceptional saturation, placing it in a rarefied category even among the world’s most beautiful diamonds. The “Unique Pink” will be offered at auction in Geneva on 17 May with a pre-sale estimate of $28-38 million (CHF 27.2m – 36.9m).
Announcing the sale of the “Unique Pink”, David Bennett, Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division, commented: “It is difficult to imagine a diamond that better illustrates the term “Vivid Pink” than this outstanding stone. The colour is simply astonishing and, for its size, it is in my experience truly unique.”
