The Graff Pink - most expensive Gem ever at auction

The Graff Pink
The Graff Pink is an emerald cut 24.78 carats, type IIa "fancy intense pink" diamond. It holds the title as most expensive single jewel ever sold at auction in the world at $ 46 million US in 2010.

“What makes it so immensely rare is the combination of its exceptional color and purity with the classic emerald-cut,” said David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s.

Little is known of the Graff Pink's history before the 1950s.
