The CTF Pink Star
Resplendently entrancing, fancy colour diamonds are prized for their beauty, rarity and value. These fascinating treasures of nature captivate beholders with their unrivalled brilliance and enchanting colours.
For these remarkable gems, colour determines value. The stronger and purer the colour, the greater the value of the diamond. Pinks, blues and greens often top price scales, and yellows are perennial and accessible favourites. Reds are also highly valued as they are extremely rare.
Aside from their alluring beauty, fancy colour diamonds are increasingly sought after as stores of wealth and investment. In recent years, they have headlined several auctions, often breaking sales records. The CTF Pink Star, a 59.60-carat fancy vivid pink diamond, sold for US$71.2 million at a 2017 Sotheby’s sale, setting a world auction record for any diamond or gemstone.
Greater public appreciation of these aspirational gems likewise bolster demand for lighter, smaller, more affordable yet still stunning fancy colour diamonds.
