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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
