Description:
LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (SEPTEMBER 24, 2018) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF "THE PINK LEGACY", 18.96 CARAT, FANCY VIVID PINK DIAMOND (SOUNDBITE) (English) SENIOR INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY DIRECTOR AT CHRISTIE'S, DAVID WARREN, SAYING: "This is the Pink Legacy. It is a vivid pink diamond that is almost 19 carats and that is an extraordinary size for a pink diamond, given that in 250 years of Christie's trading, we have only sold four pink diamonds over 10 carats." VARIOUS OF DIAMOND (SOUNDBITE) (English) SENIOR INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY DIRECTOR AT CHRISTIE'S, DAVID WARREN, SAYING: "Put it this way, in 40 years of working at Christie's I've never seen anything like this in my life. It was a huge surprise when there it was, we saw it and I couldn't quite believe that such a stone existed. It has wonderful purity and incredible brightness. It is beautifully cut, but it is the size and the colour that just take your breath away." VARIOUS OF DIAMOND (SOUNDBITE) (English) SENIOR INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY DIRECTOR AT CHRISTIE'S, DAVID WARREN, SAYING: "The estimate is $30-50 million dollars which is the highest estimate we have ever placed on any piece of jewellery at any time. The last diamond that we had that was a vivid pink sold for $32 million and was approximately four carats smaller in weight." VARIOUS OF DIAMOND
