Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

While I'm not very big on jewelry, I came across this today: Sotheby's is auctioning off an egg size diamond in October in their Hong Kong sales office.  Yes, you read that right, egg size diamond.  The said diamond is 118 carats and flawless colored.  Apparently the diamond was 299 carats before being cut into its current shape.  The winning bidder gets to name this gigantic rock.  I wonder what the name would be? 

Oct 7 update... this diamond was sold for $30.8 million dollars.  This is the highest price for a white diamond at auction ever.  I wonder what Marilyn Monroe would say?
