60 Carat Pink Star Diamond

$83 million.  That’s how much it costs to buy the most expensive diamond in the world.  The “Pink Star” set a world record for most expensive diamond, gemstone, or jewel ever sold.  New York diamond cutter, Issac Wolf, was the winner of the pink oval-cut diamond.  Sell Jewelry Boca Raton.

The previous record for most expensive gem sold was in 2010.  The 24.78 carat “Graff Pink” was sold for $46.16 million.  This week, the Pink Star eclipsed that total by by almost double.  The Pink Star weighs almost 60 carats!

There were also a bunch of other auction world records broken at the Soethby’s auction.  The world auction record for a pair of diamonds was set when two diamonds weighing 23.77 and 23.78 carats sold to a private Asian buyer for $9.2 million.  They were both rated D color (which is the best) and Internally Flawless.  A brooch by Van Cleef & Arpels sold for $10.6 million that featured a 96.62 carat fancy vivid yellow briolette diamond.  Also, a 114.73 carat Burmese sapphire sold for $7.1 million which was also a new record.

Overall, I’d say the auction went very well for Soethby’s and everyone involved.  Setting world records isn’t easy.  I wonder what the diamond cutter who bought the Pink Star has planned for it.  Seeing as he is a diamond cutter, he may try and make the stone even more valuable than it is today.
