)-- Pink and blue diamonds are two colored diamonds that have been in the headlines before, from auction records to celebrity engagement rings, trending fashion and more. With the two recent record-breaking auction sales of fancy colored diamonds, the “Oppenheimer Blue" and "Unique Pink," fancy colored diamonds are back in the headlines.
"The sale of these diamonds represents the growing trend of collectors, investors and diamond lovers to gravitate towards the rare, unique and beautiful natural fancy colored diamonds," said Gall Raiman of Raiman Rocks Diamonds in Calabasas.
The large and rare “Oppenheimer Blue,” the largest fancy vivid blue diamond ever offered at auction weighing 14.62 carats, sold for $57.6 million at auction on Wednesday in Geneva, setting a world record for any gem. A fancy vivid blue diamond of this size, clarity and color is a truly incredible work of art.
This is the most expensive jewel to ever be sold at auction, sold after two phone bidders ended a 20-minute battle. The buyer identity is not yet known.
The previous day the "Unique Pink," an extremely rare 15.38 carat pear-shaped pink diamond sold for $31.6 million at Sotheby's in Geneva, breaking another record making it the most expensive fancy vivid pink diamond ever to sell at auction.
As pink diamonds are some of the most beautiful and sought after, the record breaking sale of this pink pear shape diamond represents the popularity of pink diamonds as the new-age engagement ring, anniversary upgrade and gift of love.
"Pink and blue diamonds are some of my personal favorites, for their color, uniqueness and of course, rarity," said Gall.
