Jewel of the day: The Harry Winston Pumpkin Diamond

Why have a variety of squash today when you could have this nearly 6 carat orange diamond by Harry Winston? Known as the Pumpkin Diamond, it was set into a ring for Halle Berry to wear to the Oscars in 2002 (when she won her Best Actress Academy Award).

The stone was purchased by Winston for $1.3 million. No doubt it would sell for much more today, given that it is the world’s largest known fancy vivid orange diamond.

No word if Berry was the buyer when it was rumoured to have been sold three years after her historic win, but someone is probably extra to have this to celebrate with today.
