Ooo, Shiny

blue_diamond.jpg Fans of teh pretty should get themselves off to Sothebys to catch a glimpse of an extremely rare blue diamond. It might be wee - smaller than a 1p coin - but it's expected to fetch between £4-6m at auction in Geneva. This particular diamond has a London connection - it's from the same mine in South Africa as the Cullinan I, which you can now see gracing the Sceptre with the Cross in the Tower of London. But hurry if you want to ogle the shiny, it's only there until the end of tomorrow. (Image /
