This huge diamond started out as a 404.2 carat rough diamond mined in eastern Angola in February last year.  It's now a 163.41 carat, flawless, D-colour, emerald cut stunner.  It took six months to polish the diamond down after months of analysis, by master diamond cleaver 80 year old Ben Green, respected as the number one cleaver in the world.

The diamond was then set by a jewellers in Geneva called de Grisogono into this beautiful necklace, alongside emeralds and more diamonds and took over 1700 hours to create!

It's going to go under the hammer at Christie's in Geneva with a guide price of £23 million.....any takers?!
