Jewelry you don't see every day: the most gorgeous and the most hideous example

One person walks away with two very precious and ridiculously rare gemstones, mounted both as a matching pair of earrings. It’s a world that most of us will never take part in, but one struggles to establish what amazes us more. The rarity and the beauty and sheer size of the stones? Or the price that people are willing to pay for this.

Is it an investment, or will some lady really wear this?
