Christie’s announces The Fortune Pink (estimate: US$ 25,000,000-35,000,000), an 18.18 carat pear-shaped fancy vivid pink diamond which will lead the Geneva Magnificent Jewels sale on 8 November 2022, as part of Christie’s Luxury Week.
This exceptionally rare gemstone is the largest pear-shaped fancy vivid pink diamond ever to be offered for sale at auction. Weighing an auspicious 18.18 carats, the diamond’s weight literally translates to definite prosperity in Asia and is sure to garner interest from collectors across the globe.
To-date the largest vivid pink diamond sold at Christie’s was the 18.96 carat Winston Pink Legacy, which achieved CHF 50,375,000 and set a world record price per carat for a pink diamond sold at auction.
Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s International Head of Jewellery: “After The Rock, a 228 carat diamond sold this May in Geneva, Christie’s is proud to present The Fortune Pink, the largest pear-shaped fancy vivid pink diamond offered for sale at auction. With its auspicious weight of 18.18 carats this exceptional pink diamond of phenomenal colour will certainly bring good fortune to its new owner.”
The Fortune Pink will be revealed at Christie’s New York the week of 3 October, before touring to Shanghai, Taiwan and Singapore. This rare diamond will then be on display to the public during Christie’s Luxury Week at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues Geneva from 2 to 8 November.
