'Most Valuable Earrings Ever' Set to Fetch Up To $70 Million at Auction

Description

A pair of unique blue and pink diamond earrings on show at Sotheby's auction house in Geneva, reportedly the most valuable earrings ever to go under the hammer, are expected to fetch between $50 to 70 million. The diamonds were named after Apollo, the Greek god of of the Sun, and Artemis, his twin sister, the goddess of the moon. The 14.54-carat Apollo Blue, which is described by Sotheby's as the largest internally flawless vivid blue diamond ever to be offered at auction, is expected to fetch between $38 million and $50 million. The 16-carat Artemis Pink, with its "fancy, intense pink" hue, is expected to rake in 12.5-18 million dollars. If the combined price of both Apollo and Artemis reaches the max estimate of 70 million, these two precious stones will cost 50 times more money the average American makes in an entire lifetime. The earrings will be offered separately as individual lots at auction on May 16.
