Top 10 Jewelry Stories of 2018

Over the last 12 months, a flurry of activity has energized the jewelry world-massive diamonds were discovered, long-lost pieces made their way to auction, and a new crop of designers presented fresh takes on the classics Back in May, a stunning octahedron diamond was unearthed in Canada's Gahcho Kué mine-it's the largest that mine has ever produced Handmade with 15 rubies and more than 5,000 diamonds, the wraparound design is valued at $23 million.

Melanie Georgacopoulos's pearl designs are giving diamonds a run for their money While we now know just how incredible the gem did at auction, our first introduction to the diamond turned lots of heads Back in February, Sotheby's unveiled a white diamond that was considered the largest and purest example ever unearthed-the rarest white diamond ever to come to market.

Initially called the "Lesotho Legend," the diamond is the fifth largest on record and was found in southern Africa's Letseng mine-which has produced seven other diamonds that clock in at 200 carats or more. . Source
