Fewer than 10% of pink diamonds weigh more than 1/5 of a carat, but this Fancy Vivid Purple-Pink diamond is an unprecedented 15.81 carats. Its estimated value is US$25 million to 38 million. The diamond’s exceptional rarity, extraordinary optical transparency, brilliant colour, and enormous size make it an exceptionally important and eternal masterpiece of nature.

Its unique expression of mesmerizing beauty undoubtedly captures the hearts of discerning connoisseurs and collectors worldwide.
