The Pink Star


wealthymattersThe Pink Star,formerly known as the Steinmetz Pink is a flawless 59.6-carat, oval-cut, pink diamond.It has the highest possible colour and clarity rating from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA)

It was mined by De Beers in Africa in 1999 .It weighed 132.5 carats in the rough, and was cut and polished over a period of two years by Steinmetz Diamonds.This diamond was sold privately in 2007 but neither the price nor the owner was disclosed

It’s very rare to have vivid pink diamonds weighing even five carats so imagine how unique this gem is.

Sotheby’s is to auction this diamond in Geneva on November 13.It is expected to fetch $60m (£38m).

The Pink Star that is over twice the size of the 24.78-carat “Graff Pink” diamond that currently holds the record for the priciest pink diamond at $46.2m,is then expected to become the most expensive pink diamond in the world.
