This here is the biggest diamond (a third bigger than a golf ball) found in 13 years. Yep, it's got a name - "Lesotho Promise." But sadly for all you crazy kids trying to find a gift for your girl on Sweetest Day (Oct 16 - a Hallmark holiday, fer sure) it sold Monday at auction for more than $12 million. Once chopped (one will be a just too precious heart shape) and sawed and polished it'll be worth more like an excess of $20 million.
Now, let me tell you what I think of the diamond industry and it's largely illicit trading. Well, just check out Amnesty International and this cozy little list of 10 reasons girls shouldn't except a diamond engagement ring.*
And no, I wouldn't accept an engagement ring. I'm not that kind of girl. I'm not for sale, dude!
Besides, I'd rather get a tattoo. Now that's a commitment!
*even a humongous heart shaped monstrosity.
