Just One Left!


The Pink Star: the most valuable cut diamond ever offered at auction estimated to achieve over $60 million.
[www.telegraph.co.uk]

The Pink Star: the largest Internally Flawless, Fancy Vivid pink diamond ever graded by the GIA. Weighing 59.60 carats, it is the most valuable cut diamond ever offered at auction, estimated to sell for more than $60 million (£48.3 million) when it is auctioned at Sotheby's in Hong Kong on April 4. The current world record holder is the Oppenheimer Blue diamond, which sold for $57.5 million at Christie's in Geneva last May.

The Pink Star was cut from a 132.5-carat rough diamond mined by De Beers in Africa in 1999. It took two years of meticulous cutting and polishing to hone it into its current oval shape. It has been offered for sale before, achieving a record $83 million at Sotheby's Geneva in November 2013, but the buyer, New York-based diamond cutter Isaac Wolf, defaulted on his payment, leaving the stone to be added to the Sotheby's inventory.

Yeah, it's Used, but Mom won't mind much.

Heh...I have a coworker whose brother developed a process to make industrial diamonds with lasers and CO2. He has a diamond brick on his desk.

Why do I feel it will get lost in shipping after it leaves you?
