The Eternal Pink, which Sotheby’s described as “the most vivid pink diamond ever to come to market,” will be offered as a part of Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels auction on June 8 at in New York.

“Carrying the highest price per carat estimate ever placed on any diamond or gemstone, The Eternal Pink is expected to achieve in excess of $35 million,” Sotheby’s stated in a Facebook post.

The cushion-cut internally flawless fancy vivid purplish pink diamond weighs 10.57 carats.

The 23.78 carat rough that yielded the Eternal Pink was mined by De Beers at the Damtshaa mine in Botswana. It was fashioned into a cushion cut over six months by Diacore’s artisans, who maximized the diamond’s electric “bubblegum” color.

“This color is the most beautiful and concentrated shade of pink in diamonds that I have ever seen.” said Quig Bruning, Sotheby’s head of jewelry for the Americas.

Fancy vivid is the highest possible for a colored diamond, Sotheby’s notes.

“The modifying color of purple often results in the most charming and vibrant feminine hue that is the dream of many,” the auction house stated. “Polished as a cushion-cut, this gemstone boasts an attractive combination of facets that enhances the pink to be ‘sweeter’ to one’s eyes.”

And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
