How many of you out there had your tv tuned into the Masters to watch Bubba Watson take home his 2nd green jacket? Even if you don’t like golf, the scenery alone is worth changing the channel for. Known for it’s scenic vistas and iconic flowering azalea bushes, the Augusta National Golf Course is hands down, one of the most beautiful courses in the world. Seriously, it’s amazing and yet another reason why Georgia is one of the most beautiful states in the country. And we’re not biased… not at all. But i’m rambling a bit because something that I saw this morning reminded me of those white golf balls, but a whole lot sparklier.
Oh yes, this 103.46-carat round brilliant diamond is one of the headliners for Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction to be held in Geneva on May 13th. Oh and did we mention that this 100ct. sparkler which has the prestigious honor of being featured on the list of “World’s Largest Cut Diamonds” in Famous Diamonds, is set in a ring… a ring. I guess to be honest, i’m not exactly sure what you really should do with a diamond that large. Brooch perhaps? But I just imagine a stone of that size looking like a big doorknob hulking on your ring finger. Ah but wait, thanks to the magic of instagram, we don’t have to wonder.
Yeah, we mentioned something about doorknobs? Melanie Grant, a person that we hate a LOT, was lucky enough to try on this behemouth ring and then she had the brilliant thought to share them with the world via instagram. That’s right… No longer is it just an outlet for breakfast and pretty flower photos, there’s jewelry there too! Check us out @UnionDiamond But we’ve got questions. How did it feel on your finger? Could you lift your hand? Is it like the sun where you can’t look directly at it? HOW can we do whatever it is that you do so that we can get our hands on the wonderment?!
Oh, oh, but that’s not all. Melanie also got to try this bad boy on. Did we mention that we hate her just a tiny bit?
The 100.09-carat “Graff Vivid Yellow” is one of the largest fancy vivid yellow diamonds in the world and is expected to fetch, get this, between $15 and $25 million when it hits the auction block next month.
