Beloved James Bond superstar Sir Sean Connery put his 15.20 carat Briolette Cut Fancy Orange Pink VS2 Diamond pendant into Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva this past week expecting to receive approximately $1.2 million to $2.2 million for the piece.  Imagine the delight when it sold for $4M USD – double the pre-sale estimate.  Sotheby’s has described the sale as a “record bid” for a Fancy Orange-Pink diamond.
