'Auction season' is going full steam! After Sotheby's Auction with its deep blue record breaker and Christie's Auction where flawless colorless diamond was sold at a very high price, it's just the time for Lauder Auction which also had the lot to boast – a 6.54 ct. fancy intense pink diamond ring.
The pink diamond ring of amazing beauty (pink diamonds are bond to be so, in fact) is an item from the collection of Evelyn H. Lauder that is to benefit breast cancer research. The estimated price was only $5 million while during the auction the ring fetched $8.59 million, which is $1.3 million per a carat. This is not the record, of course, but it wasn't supposed to be so either. The money gained at auction sale should help in breast cancer research.
Six bidders fought for this flawless diamond whose color speaks for Lauder's awareness of breast cancer problem.
Colored diamonds were, are and will be in high demand among customers. The love for them seems to be endless.
