What a 15-Carat Diamond Ring Actually Looks Like on a Hand
Not familiar with the grading system for diamonds? We'll give you a little refresher: A diamond with a D flawless rating is the most valuable of them all. (And it also happens to describe Kim Kardashian's Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring.) The letter D represents diamonds that are completely colourless, while the flawless rating refers to the gems with perfect clarity. So what does this stunner look like IRL? Auction house Sotheby's posted a fascinating Instagram video of this exact type of ring, and we're completely in awe.
According to Sotheby's, the ring will be on the auction block at the company's Magnificent and Nobles Jewels auction in Geneva, Switzerland, today. Other jewels offered include sapphire Bulgari earrings expected to fetch $15,000 (USD) and an emerald ring that might command up to $50,000. A girl can dream, right?
