DIAMOND AUCTIONED FOR RECORD $71.2 MILLION - A stunning 59.6 carat diamond known as the “Pink Star” sold for $71.2 million at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong, setting a new world record for any diamond or jewel, according to the auction house. The oval mixed-cut diamond smashed the $60 million pre-sale estimate set by Sotheby’s when it went on the block.
