Sotheby’s auctions are known for breaking records every now and again, particularly when it comes to selling fancy jewelry. That being said, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the famed auction house facilitated the retail of a beautiful pink diamond for the record-breaking sum of $17.7 million. The diamond is attached to a beautiful ring and was purchased by an anonymous buyer in Hong Kong.
The stone’s highlights include the fact that it is internally flawless and that it boasts a weight of 8.41 carats, not to mention its stunning, rare pink color that impresses at a glance. With a price tag of $2 million per carat, this is undoubtedly one of the most expensive and coveted diamonds in the world, and whether it will remain attached to a ring or will be put on display somewhere all by itself, it remains to be seen.
