Someone bought a diamond ring from Costco for $600,000.

Richard Galanti, chief financial officer for the company, talked about the purchase in an earnings call last week, explaining that “we recently sold another high-value large-carat diamond for a little over $600,000.”

He then added: “If anyone is interested, please give me a call.”

The New York Daily News reports that the ring was a cushion-cut 10-carat solitaire. But it’s not clear who bought the piece or where the sale took place.

It’s not the first major jewelry purchase that Costco has announced. Last year the company sold a $400,000 ring.

The Daily News notes that the retailer “is known for carrying attention-grabbing, high-priced novelties.” That’s in addition to vast amounts of more mundane consumer goods such as food, electronics and furniture.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
