Sun Drop Diamond Auction at Sotheby’s

“But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon
Who is already sick and pale with grief.”

In the play, Mr. Capulet tried to marry his daughter off to the highest bidder, but that didn’t go so well. I have greater hopes for Sotheby’s auction of the biggest yellow diamond in the world, the Sun Drop. Look at the clarity with which it catches dark peach and violet light.

Elizabeth Taylor owned it. It seems while everyone was frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the auction at Christie’s next month, Sotheby’s siphoned off a few choice gems of its own.
