auction: November 2010 Archives

275x250.jpg One of the rarest diamonds ever found has been sold at auction for a record breaking $46 million (£29m).

The "fancy intense pink diamond" weighs 24.78 carats was snapped up by diamond dealer Laurence Graff at a recent Sotheby's auction in Geneva.

Mounted in a platinum ring, the diamond -- categorised as ‘potentially flawless’ -- was bought by the London jeweller via a telephone bid.

Instantly after the sale, Graff renamed the diamond the "Graff Pink" -- well he is a a humble and understated sort.
