Christie’s estimates The Vivid Pink diamond at $5-7 million
November 5, 2009 – Christie’s December 1 sale in Hong Kong will include four magnificent jewels from a private collection, led by “The Vivid Pink”, one of the finest Vivid Pink diamonds to appear for sale at auction (estimate: HK$39,000,000-$55,000,000/US$5,000,000-7,000,000).
Weighing 5.00 carats and set in a ring by international jeweller Graff, it is the largest Fancy Vivid Pink Potentially Flawless diamond to be offered for sale at auction.
While the vast majority of natural pink diamonds exhibit a colour modifier like purple, orange or grey, “The Vivid Pink” shows absolutely no trace of a secondary colour, making it exceedingly rare both commercially and naturally.
Christie’s will present its annual Fall sale of magnificent jewels on December 1 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Featuring over 250 jewels valued in excess of HK$260 million/US$33 million, this sale will present an array of important diamonds, fine coloured gemstones, and signed creations from the likes of Bulgari, Cartier, Graff, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Wallace Chan, as well as top jadeite jewels.
