The Pink Star

The Pink Star will be auctioned by Sotheby’s on April 4

Tobias Kormind managing director of 77Diamonds, who has viewed the pink star, said: “I’m confident this diamond will prove irresistible for the world’s leading diamond collectors and may sell for over $100m which would far surpass the conservative $60m valuation by Sotheby’s.”
