Diamonds are a girls best friend

The massive Cullinan diamond, found on this day in 1905, weighing in at over 3100 carats, was the largest gem quality diamond ever found. The largest polished stone cut from the diamond is known as the Great Star of Africa which held the record until 1985 for being the largest cut diamond weighing in at over 530 carats. Bada bling for sure!
