That's not an icecube she's holding, it's an almost 500 carat diamond found recently in a South African mine. Estimates say it could yield a flawless center stone of nearly 150 carats, which would bring somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million dollars or more.
I'd just like to hold it. Just for a minute.
Granted, I'm not even close to living the kind of life a diamond like that would feel comfortable in, I just want to get next to it and see what it's like.
Sparklies are a weakness. Like a Myna bird or a Valkyrie (according to the Kresley Cole books), I am drawn to things that reflect light. I've worn a diamond of some kind (an inheirited engagement ring to start with) since I was in 9th grade. Currently, I'm never without my diamond wedding band, solitaire necklace and toe ring. Yes, I wear a diamond toe ring. Because that's the kind of silly, fluffy girl I am.
Everyone has a weakness of the silly variety. What's yours?
