One of the world's oldest diamonds sells for $10m

16/05/2012

A stunning 35carat diamond that holds over 400 years of royal history has just been sold in Geneva for $10m.

 

This beautifully cut diamond was owned by Marie de’ Medici when crowned the queen of France in 1600 and pawned by Mary Stewart to finance Charles II’s fight to regain the English thrown in 1649.

 

So this glistening rock has been through the wars and is worth so much as a result. Watch the video from the BBC here.
