Duo diamond jewels sold at Sotheby's auction for $57 mln

Sotheby's sold a pair of pear-shaped diamond earrings at a hammer price of about $51 million Tuesday, though the 14.54-carat flawless Fancy Vivid Blue diamond that was the auction's highlight fell short of the expected range. Apollo sold for $42.1m while Artemis went for $15.3m. But the earrings sold some way below their estimated prices of $70m. The 16-carat "Artemis Pink" is near identical in shape. It is also one of the world's most "chemically pure" diamonds, according to the Gemological Institute of America, which experts say gives the stone such a high degree of transparency.

Pink Star Diamond sets $71 mln auction record

A new auction record was reached when the Pink Star went for $71.2 million, at a Sotheby’s auction Tuesday in Hong Kong . It was sold just five minutes into bidding, the BBC reports. The Pink Star is the largest flawless fancy vivid pink diamond ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America. The diamond had failed to sell in November 2013 when the buyer could not pay for its value at that time which was placed at $83 million.  The gorgeous bauble was purchased by well-known Hong Kong jeweler Chow Tai Fook and was immediately renamed the CTF Pink in memory of the late Dr. Cheng Yu-Tung, father of the current chairman and founder of Chow Tai Fook, and commemorates the brand’s 88th anniversary.
