the Pumpkin Orange Diamond

Weighing in at 5.54 carats, the Pumpkin Orange is a cushion-cut diamond with a “fancy vivid” color rating. It was purchased by Ronald Winston–of the esteemed Harry Winston house–October 30, 1997, the day before Halloween. Winston’s winning bid at Sotheby’s came in at $1.3 million.
Given the extremely vivid hue and the rarity of orange diamonds, it is considered one of the rarest diamonds in the world.
