Tuesday, November 2nd, 2011
Sotheby's Geneva realized a world auction record price for any diamond and any jewel when it sold an exceptionally rare 24.78-carat, VVS2, fancy intense pink diamond of the purest, vibrant hue for $46,158,674 (€34.000.000). Four bidders competed for the pink diamond, but the winning bid went to Laurence Graff. Shortly after the sale, Graff named the diamond "The Graff Pink" and stated: "It is the most fabulous diamond I've seen in the history of my career and I'm delighted to have bought it."
