The Williamson Pink Star takes its name from two legendary pink diamonds.

The first is the 23.60-carat Williamson diamond, which was given to the late Queen Elizabeth as a wedding gift in 1947, the second is the 59.60-carat Pink Star diamond, which sold at auction in 2017 for a record €73.14 million.
