Oughta Have a Highball Around It*
Dayum. Simultaneously gorgeous and grotesque, this 150-carat diamond ring, dubbed pretentiously but accurately The World's First Diamond Ring, is carved out of a giant diamond. Yes, that's right—the whole damn ring is a diamond. And correspondingly costs $70 million.
While it's a) spectacular and b) a cool concept, I think I'd recommend Swarovski's Nirvana ring, which is similarly lovely (I've kinda wanted one for years), less morally ambiguous, and more affordable by $69,99,810. See?
Thanks for the heads-up, Hanna!
