Vivid pink diamond sells for 10M$


#1

Dare to salivate over this news release? A Hong Kong client just
bought a little bauble. a 5.00 carat “Vivid Pink” diamond… nothing
much if you have the money. $10,828,889 mind boggling, eh? and yes
the numbers can be confirmed “Liebish and Company” news release.

Vivid pink diamond for $10,828,889??? Hm, could have saved a lot of
money by getting a cyclamen pink CZ.

Just jealous. Alma

Very interesting. Here is the link to article mentioning 5 carat
pink diamond

http://www.artdaily.org/index.asp?int_sec=2&int_new=35929

The price, it was sold for, stated is $47,941,095. So, it has to be
two different stones. I have to ask myself "what are the chances of
two 5 carat pink diamonds showing up on the market simultaneously?"
Giving how rare pink diamonds are; how even rarer stones over 1
carat in size; the answer has to be that chances are infinitely
small, approaching zero.

Is it only me, or everybody beginning to smell something?

Well, One of the networks had a nearly one carat red diamond ring
for about the same price ($10 mil.) on a morning show just the other
day is “The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Gift”.

Leonid, I agree. Something fishy going on. 5 carat pink diamonds
springing up simultaneously is more than a mere coincidence.

Hello Leonid,

Christies own site gives the price as follows:

HK$ 83,540,000
US$ 10,776,660
UKP 6,549,536
EUR 7,167,732

Cheers,

but the article states 41 million in us. that is why I am confused.

Leonid, I believe that quote was for multiple pieces covering the
whole auction. Your source as I recall was a slight misquote.
