STEAL! 10.10 CARAT BLUE DIAMOND SELLS FOR 20MILLION

The De Beers Millenium Jewel 4, 10.10 carat vivid blue diamond sold for less than estimated at Sotheby's Hong Kong auction a few days ago.

The flawless rare diamond was predicted to fetch up to 31million but was snapped up for 11million less a few minutes into the event by an anonymous buyer.

"Very few gemstones have ever been sold for more than that, and it's setting the record price here in Asia for a gemstone in auction" said David Bennett, Sotheby's worldwide chairman of the international jewellery division.
