'La Légende' heart-shaped diamond up for auction

Dazzling jewels are going under the hammer at Christie’s Geneva – including the biggest heart-shaped diamond ever up for auction, dangling from a pearl necklace.

The 92-carat, colourless diamond is expected to fetch between $14 million to $18 million.

It’s hard to believe it’s real, and it’s fittingly known as “La Légende”.

The auction will feature more than 250 jewels, including a 15-carat Burmese ruby set in a diamond ring, which could fetch $15 million.

Christie’s “Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels” auction will be held in Geneva on Tuesday (May 16).
