Today, Sotheby’s unveils a pink diamond in a stratosphere of its own: The Eternal Pink. At 10.57 carats, the cushion-cut Internally Flawless Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink Diamond is the most vivid pink diamond ever to come to market. The 23.78 carat rough which yielded The Eternal Pink was mined by De Beers at the Damtshaa mine in Botswana, and was meticulously fashioned into an exquisite cushion cut – over a period of six intense months – by Diacore’s team of artisans, maximizing the diamond’s electric “bubblegum” color to full potential.
Of all the existing grades of color, “Fancy Vivid”, as manifested by this beautiful 10.57-carat stone, is the highest possible for a colored diamond. The modifying color of purple often results in the most charming and vibrant feminine hue that is the dream of many. Polished as a cushion-cut, this gemstone boasts an attractive combination of facets that enhances the pink to be ‘sweeter’ to one’s eyes. The present stone, combining Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink color and Internally Flawless clarity, is indeed a treasure of nature.
The Eternal Pink will be offered as a part of Sotheby's Magnificent Jewels auction on 8 June at Sotheby’s New York.
