“粉红之星”钻石在香港拍出天价 刷新全球宝石纪录

A rare diamond known as the Pink Star has been sold in Hong Kong for more than $71m (£57m), setting a new world record for any gemstone at auction.
在香港最近一次拍卖会上,一颗名为“粉红之星”的珍贵钻石以7100万美元(4.9亿元人民币)的成交价刷新了全球宝石拍卖纪录。

The oval-shaped 59.6 carat stone was bought after just five minutes' bidding at Sotheby's, reports said.
报道称,苏富比拍卖行起拍才五分钟,这颗重达59.6克拉的椭圆形钻石就被买走。

It is the largest polished diamond in its class to go under the hammer.
它是拍卖史上同等级抛光钻石中最大的一颗。

It sold for $83m in Geneva in 2013 but the buyer later defaulted. The record until now was held by the Oppenheimer Blue, which sold for $50m last May.
2013年,这颗钻石曾在日内瓦拍出8300万美元的高价,但之后买家违约了。迄今为止的世界记录由去年五月份卖出5000万美元的“奥本海默之蓝”保持。

Bidding for the gem, which was found by De Beers at a mine in Africa in 1999 and cut over a period of two years, began at $56m.
“粉红之星”是戴比尔斯公司于1999年在非洲的一个矿山中发现的。经过了两年的打磨,起拍价定为5600万美元。
