This extremely rare flawless Fancy Vivid Purple Pink diamond weighing in at 8.41 carats will be highlight of Sotheby’s Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Autumn Sale, scheduled for 7 October 2014. Beautiful stone, which was cut from a 19.54-carat rough mined by the world’s leading diamond corporation De Beers, has an estimate of $12.8-$15.4 million. Magnificent piece is arguably the most desirable pink diamond to appear at auction in recent years and ranks amongst the rarest and most desirable of coloured diamonds ever seen at auction.
The uniqueness of this stone, in addition to its beautiful colour, is the fact that it is Internally Flawless, a rare phenomenon in pink diamonds and virtually unheard of in “any significant pink diamond of Fancy Vivid or Fancy Intense colour grading ever sold at auction”.
The stone will be previewed in Singapore, Taipei, New York, London, Geneva and Hong Kong before the auction.
