Auction house Sotheby’s was lucky to not only set a record price by selling the most expensive diamond in the world!
Such a large amount of money was never given at any auction before for just one gem, except this one called “Pink Star”. The diamond was auctioned in Geneva for 68 million Swiss francs (74.1 million u.s. dollars).
According to the head of the European and Middle East Office of Sotheby’s International the stone Pink Star is the biggest and the most rosy of all pink diamonds known to date .” The diamond weighs 59.6 carats.
Goodness, gracious this diamond definitely makes for a great Pinktastic Saturday! xoxo
