If you have not yet familiarized yourself with fancy colored diamonds, you should know that some of them rank among the most valuable gemstones ever known. In fact, some vivid colored diamonds have been known to sell for more than $1 million per carat. The latest of these to come to the public’s attention is the largest vivid orange diamond ever sold at auction. This beauty sold for $35 million ($2.4 million per carat), which, at the time, was a world record price for any colored diamond sold at auction. In November 2013, the huge 59.6-carat “Pink Star,” a flawless pink diamond, sold for $83.02 million, which is now the world’s record price for any gemstone sold at auction.
