The "Martian Pink" diamond, "the largest round fancy intense pink diamond" fetched $17.4 million at auction in Hong Kong this week when it went on sale for the first time in 36 years, more than double the estimated price.



Here is a look at some other rare baubles, from Elizabeth Taylor's personal collection to the world's first ring carved from a diamond created by Swiss company Shawish Jewelry.
