We have earlier told you about a rare pink diamond that went on auction and fetched $1.054 million. Another extremely rare pink diamond about the size of a Chiclet will be auctioned at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Toronto Canada on Oct 3. Billed as the most expensive diamond, it is expected to fetch anywhere from $2.5 million to $3 million. The rose pink diamond has a Vs2 clarity. “This is really extraordinary stuff,” says Duncan Parker, the president of the Canadian Gemological Association, who was holding the gem earlier.
