GENEVA (Reuters) – A rare pear-shaped vivid pink diamond fetched 30.8 million Swiss francs ($31.46 million) at auction on Tuesday, Sotheby’s said, but several other large stones failed to reach the reserve prices set by the sellers.

The “Unique Pink”, weighing 15.38 carats and mounted on a ring, sold to a telephone bidder. It was the star lot at the saleroom’s semi-annual auction in Geneva, with a pre-sale estimate of $28 million-$38 million.

Neither the seller nor the buyer were immediately identified.
