À propos de l'objet

A MAGNIFICENT UNMOUNTED CUT-CORNERED RECTANGULAR-CUT FANCY PINK DIAMOND\n\nWeighing 19.66 carats\n\nWith certificate 8410928 dated 16/2/1994 from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamond is fancy pink, natural colour, VVS2\n\nConoisseurs have considered pink diamonds to be among the most precious of gemstones since they were discovered in the mines of India. In modern times, they are seldom found and usually only in very small sizes such as those from the Australian mines. Larger specimens rarely come up for auction. Their scarcity renders the appearance of this 19.66-carat stone an extraordinary event. A beautiful shade of pink, its VVS2 clarity grade further enhances its desirability. On viewing the stone, such exquisite pink diamonds as the "Hortensia" (20-carats, Apollon Gallery, Louvre), the "Mouawad Pink" (21.06-carats, sold Christie's Geneva, May 1989) and the "Agra" (32.24-carats, sold Christie's London, June 1990) come to mind. Exceptional stones of this calibur were worn by great rulers such as Napoleon and the Moghul Emperors. Gemmologists are still unsure as to the origin of the colour in pink diamonds. Previously assumed to be the result of the element manganese in the atomic structure, it is now asserted to be the consequence of an alteration in the atomic lattice. Regardless, their beauty continues to mesmerize collectors the world over. As this stone is the third largest rectangular-cut pink diamond ever to be offered at auction, it will certainly take its place among the great diamonds of this hue.\n\nEstimate on request
