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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
