Sotheby’s to sell 12-carat blue diamond
The Second-Largest Diamond Ever Found: 1,111 Carat Diamond

Three Of The World's Costliest Diamonds Now Belong to Josephine

Josephine diamondsHong Kong billionaire Joseph Lau has spent Rs 317 crores ($69 million) for a rare 12.03 carat liquid blue diamond. He has gifted the blue stone to his seven-year-old daughter Josephine.

The diamond was also renamed 'Blue Moon Of Josephine'. This comes just a day after the tycoon, affectionately known as Big Liu, spent a whopping $40.4 million (Nearly Rs 268 crores) over a 16.08 carat pink diamond for his daughter that he also renamed 'Sweet Josephine'.

Six years back, he bought then 1-year-old Josephine her first major diamond; a 7.03-carat blue diamond for US$9.48 million (Nearly Rs 63 crores). This diamond was renamed by him as the 'Star of Josephine'.

While you marvel at the luck that follows the young josephine, let us tell you that she is not the only lucky daughter of Joseph. Her elder half-sister, 14-year-old Zoe also got two amazing gifts last year. She was gifted with a 9.75-carat 'Zoe Diamond'(US$32.6 million), and a 'Zoe Red' ruby (S$11.9 million).

Big Liu surely knows his way into his daughters' hearts and he knows the one universal truth that"Diamonds are a girl's best friend".
