Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – but some diamonds are even more coveted than others. When it comes to the world’s most popular gemstone, the diamond is a handsdown winner. Featured in engagement and wedding rings all over the world, it is no surprise that most people spend their hardearned income on beautiful, sparkling diamonds.
Rare blue diamond
A stunning blue diamond broke a world record today, fetching a price of 6.2 million British pounds (about $9.6 million), or about $1.8 million per carat, according to auctioneer Bonhams.
The diamond is a brilliant blue and is set in a ring made by Italian jeweler Bulgari around 1965. The high price likely comes from the diamond’s unusual color as well as its posh setting: Bulgari is a company beloved by the Hollywood glitterati, and blue diamonds are rarely up for sale. This particular blue diamond also happens to be a large chunk of ice at 5.3 carets.
