The Pink Star: One Of The World’s Great Natural Treasures | Sotheby’s

You girls will love this


“Meticulously cut by Steinmetz Diamonds over a period of nearly two years – a process in which the 132.50 carat rough was cast in epoxy more than 50 times in order to create models upon which the design team could experiment with different cuts -it was transformed into this spectacular 59.60 carat, fancy vivid pink, internally flawless oval cut gem – the largest internally flawless or flawless, fancy vivid pink diamond that the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has ever graded.”

“Of all fancy coloured pink diamonds, those graded ‘Fancy Vivid’ are the most precious and desirable. The current world auction record for a pink diamond is the Graff Pink, a superb 24.78 carat diamond which sold at Sotheby’s Geneva in November 2010 for US$46.16 million. Weighing in at 59.60 carats and graded as Fancy Vivid, the Pink Star is twice the size.”


If you have a spare 80 mil you might be bidding against Bear if you like it or should I say your partner likes it. See you in Hong Kong LOL

Bear’s favorite artist. Unfortunately not rich enough only have prints in my collection …

“A painting from Claude Monet’s acclaimed Grainstack series has fetched $US81.4 million ($108.8 million) at Christie’s New York auction of impressionist and modern art.

The sale set a new auction record for the artist. The previous auction record for a Monet was $US80.4 million set in 2008.

The 1891 painting, shimmering with hues of reds, pinks, blues and yellow, depicts a close-up of a single cone-shaped stack after harvest.

Monet’s Grainstack series — 25 in all — was painted just steps from his home outside a farmer’s field in the French village of Giverny.”

Why are there bears tied to trees along the Kings Highway …

Along the Kings Highway near Bungendore, a peculiar form of wildlife has taken up residence in the roadside trees.

All along the Kings Highway between Queanbeyan and Bungendore, a peculiar form of wildlife has taken up residence in the roadside trees.

Dozens of teddy bears sit still and silent, perched on limbs or hanging from branches watching the traffic roll past.

While some still look fresh and new, others are faded and tattered from years of wind, dust, rain, hail and snow.

These days the bears are self-perpetuating, multiplying simply because others are already there.

And as long as they continue to occupy the imaginations of travellers, the legends will continue to multiply with them.


Why the Bears?
