a kiss on the hand may be quite continental...
So, since my Bday is sooner than everybody would want( me, afraid of stepping into the next decade, you wondering about a proper present :) )
I add this to my wishlist... and my friends' list
A 603-carat diamond, the biggest found in 13 years and the 15th largest in the world, went on sale in Antwerp on Wednesday after being uncovered in Lesotho in southern Africa, the owners said. "It's about a third bigger than a golf ball," a spokeswoman for the owners said. It was hard to peg a valuation on the find since that depended on how many cut diamonds could be fashioned from it. A handful of the world's top diamond cutters would be allowed several hours to examine the stone before they submitted bids. The diamond, named the "Lesotho Promise," was found at the Letseng Diamond Mine high in the mountains of Lesotho, a kingdom surrounded by South Africa. REUTERS
