If there’s someone you want to impress, how about buying them this lovely pink diamond?

It is 19-carat, rectangular cut and would look lovely with a nice Shellac manicure.

The ‘Pink Legacy’ is up for auction at Christie’s next week, and is expected to make between £23,000,000 and £38,000,000.

It’s thought to be the largest fancy vivid pink diamond they’ve ever sold.

The auction will be held in Geneva on Tuesday.

The stone once belonged to the Oppenheimer diamond family, and Christie’s says it qualifies as a Type IIa diamond – the most chemically pure stones with little if any nitrogen.

It says fancy vivid pink diamonds over 10 carats are ‘virtually unheard of’ in salesrooms.

Christie’s sale kicks off two days of jewelry auctions in Geneva.
