Q
Does the Pink Panther diamond really exist?
A
Q
How did the Pink Panther diamond get its name?
A
According to the film, the diamond gets its name from a flaw in the colorization, because it is slightly pink, and when held up to the light, it is possible to see a panther-like figure inside, hence why it's called "the Pink Panther".
