Nice Move

Most people dream about finding that perfect guy. You know, the one who you call your “best friend,” the one who knows exactly what to say when you’ve had a bad day at work, and the one who knows your Chipotle order by heart. You dream about that perfect moment where he asks you to spend the rest of your life with him, and honestly you love him so much that it doesn’t matter if he proposes with a cubic zirconia ring — you would say yes anyway.

Me? I dream about the perfect ring.

If you’re like me, you’ll be happy to know that I found it: the perfect ring. Well, technically the perfect diamond. It’s the size of a tennis ball and it’s literally priceless. As in, experts say it’s “impossible to estimate” how much the diamond would cost because the value is dependent on the color, clarity, and cutting of the gem.

Okay. So it’s not very practical. But it’s fucking beautiful to look at.

The diamond is 1,111 carats and, like I said, absolutely massive. It’s second in size only to the diamond that was used to make the British crown jewels.

Watch this video talking about how they found this magnificent diamond:

I want it. I need it. But there’s absolutely no way in hell my future husband could afford it. For reference, a 341.9 carat diamond sold for $20.6 million this past July.

I guess I’ll have to settle for Tiffany’s.
