Diamonds aren’t meant to blend into the background. These dazzling gems always have the ability to turn heads and get people’s attention. Their sheer beauty and brilliance can be entrancing.

However, certain versions are even more captivating than others and you might be keen to get your hands on engagement or wedding rings that really stand out from the crowd and make a statement.

Rare pink diamond goes under the hammer

Recently, a rare pink diamond that certainly fits into this category was sold at auction. Named the Martian Pink, it fetched an impressive sum of $17.4 million (£11.1 million), the BBC reported. This was much higher than had been expected.

According to Christie’s auctioneer Rahul Kadakia, the precious stone received plenty of attention. He remarked: “The bids were very competitive… there was a lot of excitement… when it finally did come up for sale the buzz in the room was sensational.”

An interesting history

The gem has an interesting history. It got its name in 1976 and commenting on this period, Francois Curiel from Christie’s jewellery department said: “It comes from Harry Winston, who was so impressed that the Americans had landed on Mars in 1976 that he looked at his inventory and he found a rough diamond which probably could come out as pink. So he cut it, and he cut it in such a way that the intensity of the thing was larger than any of the other things that he had ever cut before.”
