The biggest known pink diamond was sold at auction in Geneva


“Pink Star”, a 56.60 carat, is the largest in his class and the biggest ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America. There is no stone of that size and color known. It measures 2.69 by 2.06 centimeters and weights 11.96 grams (0.026 pounds). It was cut and polished over two years by Steinmetz Diamonds and was presented to the public for the first time in 2003.
David Benneth, the chairman of Sotheby’s jewelry division in Europe and in the Middle East described the “Pink Star” gemstone in a few relevant words: “The pink diamond, I have no hesitation in saying, is a truly amazing.” The seller was not named in the Wednesday auction.
