One of the largest pink diamonds in the world has been sold at auction for more than $39.3m (£25m).
The Princie Diamond was purchased by an anonymous collector bidding by phone, Christie’s in New York said.
The 34.65 carat diamond’s origin can be traced back to the ancient diamond mines of Golconda in southern India.
It once belonged to the royal family of Hyderabad, rulers of one of the wealthiest provinces of Mughal India.
