Just look at that!!!

You wouldn’t wear it on a quick trip to Asda, neither can you show it off to your friends for fear of being mugged, yet, it sold for almost £52m. The Pink Star (it’s even got it’s own name!) is the largest in its class ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), with the second biggest less than half its size, it measures 2.69 by 2.06 centimetres and weighs 11.92 grammes.

It was sold by luxury auctioneers; Sotheby’s in Geneva and you’re probably wondering who the buyer was? His name is Isaac Wolf, a New York diamond cutter who has renamed the diamond…’Pink Dream’?

Imagine being proposed to with a 59.60 carat diamond? We dare you to say no.
