The flawless 101.73-carat rock, which took 21 months to polish, was discovered in the hills of Botswana and sold to an anonymous buyer (some Saudi Arabian sheik or Asian millionaire, probably) on Wednesday.

I also see that gorgeous Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida’s diamonds fetched almost $5-mil at auction. Ms. Gina is funding an international hospital for stem cell treatment. Brava!
