Sotheby's sold a rare pink diamond ring for $46.16 million to London jeweler Laurence Graff. He humbly dubbed it the "Graff Diamond." The sale smashed the previous record for highest-priced diamond, also set by Graff in 2008. The ring has not been on the market for 60 years, when it was last sold to a private collection by Harry Winston.

Poor Kate Middleton. Her sapphire and diamond ring has been valued at only $398,350.

OUTRAGEOUS! What selfish,disgusting human would pay $46 million for a pink rock when there are starving people & animals in this entire world that $46 mill could stop their suffering. Please pray that this man & anyone who buys this rock goes to hell as punishment for inhumane treatment of living & breathing things.I hope this email somehow gets to this pig

To ryden17: are you poor? Only poor low class people may think that the entire world is obligated to feed all the starving and suffering individuals. Why should I use my hard earned money to somebody's pleasure or even needs? Mr. Graff (the buyer of the above stone), well-known London jeweler, earned his money, not stole it. So, he has the right to spend it the way he wants. If you care that much about all that suffering people, please spend your own money to feed them. I don't care. Like Mr. Graff.
