If pink is your favourite colour, this would be no doubt the best of 2017 for you... this 59.6 carat 'CTF Pink Star'. It set a new world auction record of US$71.2 million for any diamond or jewel during Hong Kong Spring Sale at the Sotheby's. This gorgeous stone basically doubled the previous record for a fancy vivid pink diamond. 

It was sold to the renowned jeweller Chow Tai Fook.

Who would have known that car boot sale is the best place to find the surprise diamond. The 26.27 carat diamond ring now named "Tenner" was originally purchased in the 1980s from a car boot sale.

The owner assumed it was merely a costume jewel, had no idea of its value and bought this cushion-shaped jewel for £10 in the 80s. This assumed costume jewel was then sold via Sotheby's for £656,750.
