Second-Largest Diamond Ever Unearthed In Botswana


This week, miners in Botswana discovered the second-largest gem-quality diamond ever found. Now GIMME.

The stone is the biggest diamond to be discovered in more than a century. Clocking in at 1,111 carats, it's a size that makes Kim Kardashian's 15-carat ring look like a dinky toy you win out of a vending machine.

The diamond was immediately pinned to a bajillion wedding inspiration Pinterest boards.
