A monster mega diamond – the largest round diamond ever offered at auction, in fact – was on display Monday, blinding spectators with its sparkle.
Sotheby's Los Angeles presented the diamond, along with other impressive gems, at a preview event before the sparklers go on the auction block Dec. 5 and 7.
A vivid blue diamond estimated to be worth between $12 and $15 million, stunned the crowd. It came in at 5.69 carats.
But that was nothing compared to the 110.92-carat diamond that looked comically large on a woman’s hand.
Designs from Cartier, Bulgari, Harry Winston and more were also being shown off.
