Christie’s: Huge Pink Diamond Could Rake In $12 Million

An internally flawless 10.20-carat Fancy Intense Pink diamond is anticipated to sell for up to $12 million next month at Christie’s New York, IDEX Online reports. The Type IIa “Eden Rose” stands out for its complete absence of any secondary color, according to Christie’s, unlike many pink diamonds which display purple, orange, or gray hues.


“Given its rarity, we are anticipating significant interest from around the world,” said Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s international head of jewelry. “The Eden Rose has never been offered at auction and we are proud to be presenting a jewel of its unmatched caliber for the first time.”


Estimated to sell for between $9 million and $12 million, the Eden Rose will headline the New York Magnificent Jewels auction on June 11, 2024, as part of Christie’s Luxury Week.


The current record for a pink diamond sold at auction is held by the CTF Pink Star, a 59.60-carat oval mixed-cut fancy vivid pink, internally flawless diamond, which was auctioned at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in April 2017 for $71.2 million.


In other auction news, a 2.68-carat Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink diamond will headline Christie’s Hong Kong sale later this month, with an estimated price of up to $6.4 million. The GIA-certified internally flawless diamond boasts excellent polish, a cut-cornered rectangular mixed cut, and is set in a gold ring surrounded by white kite-shaped and round diamonds.
