An extremely rare 15.38 carat pear-shaped pink diamond — called the ‘Unique Pink’ — sold for $31.6 million at Sotheby’s in Geneva on Tuesday, making it the most expensive fancy vivid pink diamond ever to sell at auction.

The spectacular diamond, set in a simple ring, sold to an Asian private buyer who bid for the rare gem over the telephone. A Sotheby’s spokesperson said they were not yet able to reveal the buyer’s identity.

“It is difficult to imagine a diamond that better illustrates the term vivid pink than this outstanding stone…the color is simply astonishing,”

David Bennett, worldwide chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery, said in a statement announcing the sale.
