This 10.6 Carat Pink Diamond Could Fetch $35 Million At Sotheby’s
“The Eternal Pink,” a 10.57-carat internally flawless fancy vivid purplish-pink diamond, will be offered at Sotheby’s New York on June 8. Its estimate is $35 million, which if achieved, would make it one of the most valuable gems ever sold at auction.

Its per-carat estimate of more than $3.3 million is the largest such estimate ever placed on a diamond or gemstone, according to Sotheby’s.

Quig Bruning, head of Sotheby’s Jewelry, Americas, says it’s the most vivid pink diamond to ever to come to market. “This color is the most beautiful and concentrated shade of pink in diamonds that I have ever seen.”

The cushion-shaped diamond will first be on view in Hong Kong April 1 – 7 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Sotheby’s presence in Asia. The gem will then travel to Dubai, Singapore, Shanghai, Taiwan and Geneva before being offered as the top lot at Sotheby’s New York Magnificent Jewels auction on June 8.
