Record set for Diamond sale

Tuesday’s sale breaks the record previously held by the Oppenheimer Blue diamond, which sold for $57.5m at Christie’s in Geneva in May last year.

Prior to the sale David Bennet, Sotheby’s worldwide chairman for international jewellery, who presided over the auction, said: “The extraordinary size of this 59.60-carat diamond, paired with its richness of colour, surpasses any known pink diamond recorded in history.”
