16.08 Carat Fancy Vivid Pink Diamond Expected to Sell for Over $23 Million at Christie’s

Christie’s will offer a 16.08 ct. cushion-shaped fancy vivid pink diamond at its Nov. 10 Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva and estimates the rare gem will sell for $ 23 million–$ 28 million. 

The diamond is the largest of its kind to ever be sold at auction, and, in fact, only three pure vivid pink diamonds over 10 cts. have ever appeared at auction.

The spectacular stone is set as a ring, surrounded by a double row of pavé-set white diamonds and a third row of pavé-set pink diamonds. The band consists of circular-cut white diamonds set in platinum.
