Let’s take a look at what is it made of:

It features a 5.30 carat Blue Diamond. Blue Diamonds are very pure and rare accounting for only 1% of the diamonds mined world-wide.

The stone was crafted in 1965 and it has been set in a Trombino ring designed by the Bvlgari, the renowned Italian jeweler featured by many Hollywood stars.

The ring was bought by Graff Diamonds which is one of the world’s most known collector houses when it comes to precious gems, for almost $9.5 million at an auction held in London by Bonham’s Fine Jewelry.
