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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
