The "Pink Sun Rise" Diamond is a rare, flawless fancy pink 29.78 carat diamond cut by famed diamond cutter Gabi Tolkowsky. The diamond's shape is an homage to the famous Centenary Diamond, also cut by Tolkowsky. Little else is know of this unique gem, including date of discovery, country/mine of origin, etc, other than it was unveiled to the public at the beginning of the 21st century.

Named the Argyle Pink Jubilee, the rough stone was found at Rio's pink diamond operations in the Kimberley region of western Australia and would take 10 days to cut and polish in Perth. (AFP Photo/)
