Diamond Earrings Fetch $57 Million In Geneva

Two dazzling Pink and Blue Pear-shaped Diamonds have together sold for Fifty-Seven Million Four Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars to a private buyer at Sotheby's Auction House.

Sotheby's said the Apollo and Artemis stones are "By far the most important pair of earrings ever offered at auction".
They were offered to buyers separately at the auction house's magnificent jewels and noble jewels sale in Geneva, but were purchased by the same buyer.

Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby's International Jewellery Division, David Bennett termed the sale as successful.
Last month, a 59.60-carat pink diamond was sold for a record $71.2 million in Hong Kong.
