AUCTION – Christie’s New York announces fancy vivid pink diamond as top lot of Magnificent Jewels sale on 6 December


NEW YORK – Christie’s will present one of the finest fancy vivid pink emerald-cut diamonds ever to be offered at auction which will be part of the Magnificent Jewels sale on 6 December, 2022, at Rockefeller Center during Luxury Week.

The Fancy Vivid Pink Diamond Ring (estimate: US $25,000,000-35,000,000) is set with an impressive 13.15 carat VVS1 clarity, potentially Internally Flawless diamond.

The appearance on the market of a pink diamond of this caliber is a phenomenon in the world of rare diamonds.

In the fancy vivid pink range, a diamond of more than six carats is rarely encountered and for context, less than 10 percent of pink diamonds weigh more than just one fifth of a carat.

Rahul Kadakia, International Head of Christie’s Jewellery: “Following the success of The Fortune Pink, which achieved almost $30 million last week in Geneva, we are proud to have been approached by a private collector to offer this incredible diamond at auction in December.  This season has seen outstanding results for fancy-colored diamonds and this particular fancy vivid pink is of the highest caliber.  With impressive saturation, step-cut facets and a clarity grade of potentially Internally Flawless, this 13.15 carat fancy vivid pink is magnificently rare.”
