A rare pink diamond has sold for $23.2 million (£14.86 million) at an auction in Hong Kong.
The stone, also known as the Perfect Pink, was bought by an anonymous bidder at the event, which was held by Christie's auction house.
Its valuable price tag makes it the most expensive jewel ever sold at auction in Asia, with Burmese rubies, Kashmir sapphire and jadeite also receiving high bids from buyers.
Vickie Sek, director of the jewellery and jadeite department of the auctioneer's Asian branch, said: "The strength of the jewellery market was once again demonstrated in Hong Kong with a record $78.9 million auction, making it the highest total ever for a jewellery auction in Asia."
She added that the Perfect Pink has become the most expensive jewel ever sold in Asia.
Earlier this month, the Fancy Intense Pink diamond broke all auction records after fetching £29 million – it was purchased by British jewellery trader Laurence Graff.
