Dedicated WebPage for an Up-to-date Table on Famous Pink Diamonds

Our website has an extensive resource database on the history of the diamond trade, that also includes well written articles on the history of the famous diamonds in the world. More than 200 famous diamonds have been treated extensively under this section and are listed in alphabetical order on two webpages titled Famous Diamonds, Gemstones and Pearls. A third webpage listing additional famous diamonds have been created, and given the title "More Famous Diamonds"

In some of our famous diamond pages we have also incorporated tabulated information pertaining to other famous diamonds of the type of diamond under consideration, eg. when writing about a famous blue diamond, a table incorporating all other famous blue diamonds is also included, that gives the overall position of the blue diamond under consideration on this table. The table also includes a wealth of information such as the carat weight of the diamond, the shape/cut of the diamond, the color grade/clarity of the diamond, the country/period of origin of the diamond and price realized at auction or value when last sold.

In this webpage we are publishing a table of known famous pink diamonds arranged in descending order of carat weights. The table would be updated as the existence of more significant pink diamonds come to light.
