Pink Diamonds Earn Lots of Green

Fancy colored diamonds continue their hot streak at auction, as two 5 ct.-plus pink diamonds blew away their estimates at the Christie’s June 10 Important Jewels auction in New York.

The sale’s headline stone, a 5.5 ct. fancy-vivid pink oval, fetched $9.6 million, or $1.7 million a carat—$2 million more than its $6.5 million–to–$7.5 million estimate.  

Another pink diamond—a 5.91 ct. fancy light VS1 rectangular cut—sold for $1.8 million, more than double its $575,000-to-$675,000 estimate.
