“A symbol of great wealth, the wearing of bangles in China can be traced back more than 2,000 years. The Chinese believe jadeite is a gift from heaven and so the shape of this highly important and superb bangle means it represents the ‘Circle of Heaven’. It is a highlight of Sotheby’s upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale (03 April, Hong Kong).” view video here The Circle of Heaven Sotheby’s

“Meticulously cut by Steinmetz Diamonds over a period of nearly two years – a process in which the 132.50 carat rough was cast in epoxy more than 50 times in order to create models upon which the design team could experiment with different cuts -it was transformed into this spectacular 59.60 carat, fancy vivid pink, internally flawless oval cut gem – the largest internally flawless or flawless, fancy vivid pink diamond that the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has ever graded.”
“Of all fancy coloured pink diamonds, those graded ‘Fancy Vivid’ are the most precious and desirable. The current world auction record for a pink diamond is the Graff Pink, a superb 24.78 carat diamond which sold at Sotheby’s Geneva in November 2010 for US$46.16 million. Weighing in at 59.60 carats and graded as Fancy Vivid, the Pink Star is twice the size.”
