The Steinmetz Pink

The Steinmetz Pink is an internally flawless 59.6 carat vivid pink diamond and is said to be one of the most precious stones ever mined.

The gem was discovered in southern Africa in 2001 and weighed over 100 carats. Unveiled in 2003 after 20 months of cutting and polishing, the gem's facet pattern is unique: an oval mixed cut with a step-cut crown and a brilliant cut pavilion.

The stone is conservatively estimated to be worth at least $ 25m.
