Giant Diamond Gets A Name
How's this for a love gift? The 101.27-carat diamond which sold for $6.21 million to a private buyer at the Christie's Hong Kong jewelry auction last May has a new name. The stone's new owner has dubbed it "The Shizuka Diamond" as a gift for his wife of 16 years. The Shizuka diamond is the largest colorless diamond ever sold at auction in Asia. The shield-shaped F-color stone was cut from a 460-carat piece of rough and has 92 facets.
