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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
