With the Lesedi La Rona (link when posted) yielding massive price tags in auction recently we felt the urge to bring you two more famous (and frankly mammoth) colorless stones.
From big time investors to everyday diamond enthusiasts, we have all felt the inclination to take a perfect diamond picture of our prized possession; be it for selling, artistic, or just “capturing the moment” purposes.

Values for colored diamonds can run into the millions, whether they are loose or mounted in jewelry.
