Sotheby’s è lieta di presentare ‘The Raj Pink’, il più grande diamante fancy intense pink del mondo, di carati 37.30. Questo sontuoso ed eccezionalmente raro diamante sarà al centro dell’asta ginevrina del 15 Novembre 2017 di Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels.

“La scoperta di un diamante rosa è sempre un fatto eccezionale”
commenta David Bennett, Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division
“ma le straordinarie dimensioni e l’intensità del colore vede il “The Raj Pink’ classificarsi nella esigua lista dei più importanti diamanti rosa conosciuti.”

MAESTOSA PRESENZA

The rough diamond which yielded ‘The Raj Pink’ was studied for over a year after its discovery in 2015. It was then entrusted to a master cutter, who brought the diamond’s innermost beauty to full display by crafting it into a sparkling cushion-modified brilliant cut. ‘The Raj Pink’ was named by the current owner of the diamond, who wishes to remain anonymous. It is based on the Sanskrit word for ‘king’.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), which certified the diamond, characterized it as an “astonishing stone”, describing its hue as “a very bright and ravishing fancy intense pink color”. It continued, “For a diamond to display strong, unmodified pink color like that observed in The Raj Pink is rare, particularly at so considerable a weight”. The discovery of a gem-quality pink diamond of any size is an extremely rare occurrence. Of all diamonds submitted to the GIA each year, less than 0.02% are predominantly pink.

“Only on the rarest occasions do diamonds with vibrant, shocking color like the Raj Pink’s emerge… only the most privileged and knowledgeable in the industry know of their existence. With an unmodified Fancy Intense Pink hue, substantial size and desirable clarity, the Raj Pink is certainly one of those gems that only few may have the honor of experiencing.”
Gemological Institute of America
