If the price of your diamond earrings made you vow to wear them every day so as to get your money’s worth, the amount you’d have to pay for the following diamonds might make you fall over in a dead faint. Just for fun, we’ve calculated what each diamond would cost you per day if you wore them daily for the next 30 years.
The Hope Diamond
The Hope Diamond is a large blue diamond (45 carats) currently located in the Smithsonian Museum. It was once owned by the Kings of France and is supposedly cursed. King Louis of France was beheaded during the French Revolution, which is probably what started this rumor.
Current value of the Hope Diamond = $350 million
Cost per day for the next 30 years = more than $30,000 each day
The Cullinan Heritage Diamond
The Cullinan Heritage is a colorless diamond which sold at auction, uncut, for $35.3 million. It was the highest price ever paid for a rough diamond. It weighed in at 3106.75 carats and was cut into 105 smaller diamonds. The value of the cut stones together are about $400 million.
Cost per day for the uncut diamond if worn for 30 years = more than $3,000 per day
Cost per day for the cut diamonds if worn for 30 years = more than $36,000 each day
The De Beers Centenary Diamond
The Centenary Diamond is the highest grade possible—it is colorless and flawless. It weighs 85 carats and is worth approximately $100 million.
Cost per day if worn for the next 30 years = more than $9,000 each day
