Now That's a Diamond!

One word...dizam!!

It's 33.19 carats, and it belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, but now it's up for auction at Christie's.  I saw it this afternoon - and can I just say, it's even more incredible in person than it is in this photo.

Richard Burton bought it in May 1968 at Sotheby's for $305,000, and Christie's has it estimated to sell for between $3,500,000 and $5,500,000.  Talk about appreciation!!

It was gorgeous!! Even better than Kim Kardashian's {former} huge rock...

And another view, for scale...
