    MANDARIN ORIENTAL, GENEVA 15 NOVEMBER 2017

     

    Geneva, 11 October 2017 – Sotheby’s is delighted to present ‘The Raj Pink’, the world’s largest known Fancy Intense Pink diamond, weighing 37.30 carats. This superb and exceptionally rare diamond will take centre stage during Sotheby’s sale of Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels in Geneva, on 15 November 2017.

     

    “The discovery of any pink diamond is exceptional, but the Raj Pink’s remarkable size and intensity of colour places it in the rarefied company of the most important pink diamonds known.”

    David Bennett, Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division

     

    MAJESTIC PRESENCE

     

    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.”
