World Record 7.7 million D-Flawless Annenberg Diamond

Opps Did i mention it's a 32 carat Asscher cut. An anonymous buyer paid a good 7.7 million for the rock although it was merely estimated to fetch just over 3 million by Christies. Do the math and that's about 240,000 per carat.wow wow wow... Wish i was there to capture that jaw dropping moment when the auctioneer pounded the podium.
The diamond was previously owned by philanthropist Leonore "Lee" Annenberg, who died in March at the age of 91. Recession? Really?
