We Like Big Diamonds and We Cannot Lie
Does that joke ever get old? Nope! Especially not now that we know whose derriere inspired the bard of butts. And what a coincidence, she happens to be a huge fan of huge diamonds. And she’s obviously not the only one. We’re obsessed with the larger than average rocks, and we love to snap up interesting shapes and colors whenever we spot a big diamond at a jewelry show. But even our biggest diamond still can’t quite touch the insane carat weights of these huge diamonds. The top 10 largest diamonds ever are monstrous beauties all weighing absurd carats. It’s rare to find diamonds so large in the first place, let alone large jewelry quality diamonds. And when you do, its even less likely that you’d find one you can cut and polish as a whole (rather than cutting down into several smaller diamonds to avoid inclusions and blemishes.) So it’s no wonder that when a huge diamond is discovered (and auctioned) we make a big deal out of it. Here are some of the biggest deals, and biggest diamonds.
