The rough diamond weighed around 793 carats. It takes its name from its owner, Shah Jehan, fifth in succession from Baber, founder of the so-called "Mogul" dynasty in Hindustan.
Sun-Drop Diamond ($10.9 million) Setting a record for a yellow diamond at auction, the Sun-Drop Diamond of South Africa sold at Sotheby's Geneva this week for more than $10.9 million. The pear-shaped gem weighs 110.3 carats and was discovered only last year, meaning it has no previous owners, which added to its value. And it also comes with a bonus—the new owner gets to name the stone.
