A 16.08ct Fancy Pink IF type lla cushion shape pre auction estimate is from This type of diamond is rare not only for its spectacular hue but also stones in type such as the Hope Diamond and the Graff Pink The fancy vivid pink means the hue is of the purest and strongest of saturation.
Stated by Chrsities, " In almost 250 years of auction history, only three pure vivid pink diamonds of over ten carats have appeared for sale ".
Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s International Head of Jewellery had said, "As large and rare colored diamonds of this caliber become increasingly hard to locate, this 16.08 carat Fancy Vivid pink diamond comes to market at a time when great gems are mirroring prices achieved for masterpieces in the world of fine art. Collectors are looking to jewels as savvy investments that are both beautiful and can appreciate considerably in value over a relatively short period of time".
Christies states that the previous owner had purchased the stone as an investment. A smaller pink diamond, 8.79cts had sold for $15.9Million in May in Geneva. So its quite possible that this particular diamond can break world records buy selling for even more than the pre auction estimate of $28 Million. Its anyone's guess as to how feverishly collectors will be bidding on this exquisite diamond.
