Teardrop Diamond Replica
One of the most famous diamonds of American celebrity, this 69.42 ctw teardrop-shape diamond was purchased as a gift for one of the great actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age. This iconic gem was cut from a rough stone weighing 240.80 carats found in the South Africa's Premier Mine in 1966. A few years later, it was sold for $1,050,000. The story goes that this actress' husband had sent a representative to the auction, but lost the bidding. Upon hearing this, he immediately called from a payphone and negotiated for the gem-money was no object, and he had been quoted saying that he would buy his wife the Taj Mahal if it could be transported. After the couple's divorce, she parted with the gem, selling it in 1979 for $5 million, saying that part of the proceeds would fund the building of a hospital in Botswana.
