A giant pink diamond has become the most expensive jewel ever sold at auction, fetching $71.2 million at Sotheby's in Hong Kong on Tuesday.
Clocking in at 59.60 carats, the Pink Star was the largest polished diamond ever to go on the auction block. Sotheby's said it was sold to a client who phoned in a bid.
The final price was 553 million Hong Kong dollars, including the buyer's premium, or auction house charge.
This isn't the first time the Pink Star has gone up for sale.
