The Pink Legacy is no exception. Reportedly, just five and a half minutes of bidding was all it took to decide who would get to be the new owner of this world-famous 19-carat stone. On November 13, 2018, it was sold to none other than Harry Winston himself.
Weighing in at 18.96 carats and classified as a Fancy Vivid Pink Diamond, it brought in a record-breaking $49,871,250 million ($2.6 m per carat). Of course, the pink and diamond ring was immediately renamed “The Winston Pink Legacy”, and has now joined other well-known gems owned by the man, which make up the “Legacy Diamond Collection”.
The bunch also includes the 13.22-carat, Fancy Vivid Blue “Winston Blue Diamond”, which was bought for another world record-price at a 2014 Geneva auction. Then there is the “Winston Colorless Legacy”, weighing in at 101.73 carats, which was sold for $26.7 million in 2013. That set a world record as well.
