The Premier rose at 353cts rough, the Niarchos 426cts rough, the DeBeers Centenary 599cts rough, the Golden Jubilee 755cts rough, and the Taylor Burton 69cts polished.

She had built this closet to host benefits and events, noting that their is also a champagne bar on an upper level. One item that will never be able to be replaced is a locket that contained a lock of her deceased sons hair (he passed away tragically at the age of 16). How awful to loose the one item that has more emotional value than everything combined. the police are taking DNA from the scene. I hope that the culprit is captured~
Til next time, keep sparkling!
