Discovered in the Damtshaa of mine in Botswana in 2020 and carefully cut over the course of six months by the master diamantaires of Diacore, the 10.57-carat Eternal Pink is the most vibrant pink diamond ever to be offered at auction.
Its Fancy Vivid Purpleish Pink color is amplified by its chemical purity – as a Type IIa diamond, there is no nitrogen to mute its spectacular hue.
Further distinguished by its Internally Flawless clarity, the Eternal Pink was set to join the record-breaking ranks of other spectacular diamonds crafted by Diacore, including the Williamson Pink Star, the DeBeers Blue, and the CTF Pink Star (which was sold by Sotheby’s in 2017 for $71.2 million).
The Eternal Pink diamond had already received advanced bids prior to it being called, and so bidding began for the diamond at $26 million. 5 bids were received during the live auction before the hammer went down and the Eternal Pink sold for a whopping $30 million. With buyer’s premium, the rare vivid pink diamond will actually cost the buyer $34,804,500.
