World’s Most Expensive Ruby and Rare Pink Diamond Sell for $35 Million Each

The Estrela de Fury from Mozambique is the largest ruby to have been sold at a public auction.


Text size

Sotheby’s sold two precious gemstones for US$34.8 million each Thursday in New York, setting records for both. 

The 55.22-carat Estrela de Fury from Mozambique, the largest ruby to have been sold at a public auction, achieved a hammer price of US$30 million after 90 seconds of bidding. Moments later, a diamond Sotheby’s calls “Eternal Pink,” which is actually a vivid purplish pink, took just two minutes to also hammer at US$30 million.

The Estrela de Fury was estimated to sell for more US$30 million, while the Eternal Pink was estimated to sell for about US$35 million. Estimates don’t include fees. Both gems were guaranteed with irrevocable bids from a third party ensuring they would sell for a minimum price. Bidding began at US$24 million for the Estrela de Fury and at US$26 million for the pink diamond.

The ruby, which was unmounted for the sale, was carved from a 101-carat stone unearthed less than a year ago in a mine owned by Dubai-based Fura Gems. The result was a record for the sale of a ruby and any colored gemstone at auction, Sotheby’s said. The price just exceeded a previous record of US$30.3 million for the Sunrise Ruby, a 25.59-carat stone originally from Myanmar, that sold at a Sotheby’s auction in Geneva in 2015. 

“With its unprecedented size, piercing color and rare degree of optical transparency and clarity, it truly deserved the record-breaking price today,” Quig Bruning, head of Sotheby’s jewelry, Americas, said in a news release. “Rubies of this importance and magnitude are exceedingly rare,” Sotheby’s added.  

Some of the sale proceeds will fund a new Fura training academy in various fields for local

Largest pink diamond in 300 years discovered in Angola, company says

A big, pink diamond of 170 carats has been discovered in Angola and is claimed to be the largest such gemstone found in 300 years.

Named the “Lulo Rose,” the diamond was found at the Lulo alluvial diamond mine, the mine’s owner, the Lucapa Diamond Company, announced Wednesday on its website.

“Only one in 10,000 diamonds is coloured pink. So you’re certainly looking at a very rare article when you find a very large pink diamond,” Lucapa CEO Stephen Wetherall told The Associated Press.

The pink gemstone is expected to fetch a high value when auctioned, but Wetherall said he doesn’t know what kind of premium will be paid because of its colour.

Mine has history of large discoveries

Lulo is an alluvial mine which means the stones are recovered from a river bed. The Lucapa company is searching for underground deposits, known as kimberlite pipes, which would be the main source of the diamonds, said Wetherall, speaking from the company’s headquarters in Australia.

“We’re looking for the kimberlite pipes that brought these diamonds to the surface,” Wetherall said. “When you find these high-value large diamonds … it certainly elevates the excitement from our perspective in our hunt for the primary source.”

About 400 staff are employed at the Lulo mine, which has already produced the two largest diamonds ever found in Angola, including a 404-carat clear diamond, he said.

The pink gemstone is the fifth largest diamond found at the mine where 27 diamonds of 100 carats or more have been found, according to Lucapa.

The pink diamond will be sold by international tender by the Angolan state diamond marketing company, Sodiam. Angola’s mines make it one of the world’s top 10 producers of diamonds.

The diamond is expected to fetch in the millions at a forthcoming auction run by Angolan state diamond marketing company Sodiam.

(It remains the world’s most expensive pink diamond.) Lucapa’s managing director Stephen Wetherall has not provided an estimate of Lulo Rose’s worth as the diamond is still being examined and valued.

“This record and spectacular pink diamond recovered from Lulo continues to showcase Angola as an important player on the world stage for diamond mining and demonstrates the potential and rewards for commitment and investment in our growing diamond mining industry,” Diamantino Acevedo, Angola’s minister of mineral resources, petroleum and gas, said in a statement.
