Sotheby’s expects it to sell for more than $70 million.

The world’s largest diamond in existence today will soon hit the auction block when Sotheby’s offers up the massive stone to the highest bidder in London on June 29, the New York Daily News reports. The article says that the tennis ball-sized diamond was discovered last November in Botswana by Canada’s Lucara Diamond Corporation, measuring 1,109 carats to become the second-largest rough diamond ever found. (The largest was a 3,106-carat diamond that was unearthed in South Africa in 1905 and later cut into nine pieces.) Sotheby’s expects the diamond to sell for more than $70 million.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
