This doll definitely got the looks: blonde, 11.5 inches tall, with a black strapless evening dress and a bejeweled choker, Barbie is decorated with a stunning Canturi neck piece made up of 3.00 carats of white diamonds surrounding a collectable 1.00ct square emerald (cut) pink diamond worth more than the average U.S. home.

A diamond Cubism ring sparkling on her right hand completes the jewelry set.

The pink diamond was especially hand-picked for & inspired by Barbie and is a registered tendered stone from the Australian Argyle mine.

The 1.00ct square emerald (cut) diamond, notable for its distinctive purplish pink hue, is a rare and unique collector’s item, and it is substantially more valuable than its white diamond equivalent.

This one was made to coincide with the launch of the Barbie Basics Collection in Australia.
