I was amazed by this beautiful blue diamond picture that I saw as I was navigating gemstone and diamond sites.

It just sold at auction for almost 60 million bucks!

From the page at Christie’s:

Set with a fancy vivid blue rectangular-cut diamond, weighing approximately 14.62 carats, flanked on either side by a trapeze-shaped diamond; also accompanied by the original ‘Eight Blades’ mounting from Verdura, ring size 6, mounted in platinum
‘Eight Blades’ ring signed Verdura

Accompanied by report no. 10387774 dated 14 May 2015 from the GIA Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamond is Fancy Vivid Blue, natural color, VVS1 clarity.

Further accompanied by a hardbound monograph from the GIA Gemological Institute of America, featuring additional photography, data collection charts and gemological research, attesting to the rarity and provenance of The Oppenheimer Blue.

Here’s the video for this beauty:
