We were a little short on pocket change last week when a 101.73 carat flawless pear-shaped diamond went up for auction at Christie’s Geneva. The stone, which Christie’s was calling the most perfect diamond ever up for auction, was snapped up by jeweler Harry Winston and renamed the “Winston Legacy.”
For context, the Winston Legacy diamond is roughly the size of a small lime — completely eclipsing some of the most amazing diamonds we’ve seen throughout the years. And while the sight of this jaw-dropping stone has us reminiscing about some of our favorite Harry Winston memories, we also can’t help but wonder who will be the first to sport this newest bauble.
Harry Winston isn’t saying what’s next for the diamond, but we have a few ideas: The world’s sparkliest belt buckle for Bradley Cooper? A first anniversary ring from Brad Pitt to Angelina Jolie? Perhaps Miley Cyrus will pair it with a crop top?
While you’re pondering that question (and telling us who you’d love to see wear this giant diamond!) check out some of our favorite jaw-dropping diamonds from years past, worn by some of the most legendary beauties of their time.
