Celebrities are always keen on eyeing on the most expensive rocks. Of course, why not? If you have millions of dollars to toss around, why not sparkle your life with these dazzling and amazing rocks?
But there are a few diamonds that still make a statement today through their pop culture history.
One of them is the one that was worn by Audrey Hepburn – the yellow Breakfast At Tiffany’s diamond. However, there’s no doubt in the fact that the Queen of onscreen gems has to be the one that managed to attract and mesmerize everyone looking at it – Titanic’s iconic ‘Heart of the Ocean’ necklace.
It did steal the show at the end of the movie even after being a bougie gift that was given to Rose by the villain of the movie, Cal Hockley.
It made its statement at the end after Jack freezes in the aftermath of the ship’s disastrous sinking as the action was taken forward in time by the director, James Cameron, where we saw old Rose tossing it into the ocean where its name did suggest to whom it belonged.
This diamond is very closely associated with the real Titanic’s mystery which till today remains unsolved. James Cameron has crafted this blue diamond gift to Rose on the basis of the Hope Diamond which is a real jewel that was worn in the early 1900s by wealthy societies and royals.
Its stunning blue hue made it a statement and a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry and it is estimated to be worth 45.52 crats. However, it is not available for sale. It has been treasured well at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC.
According to the Smithsonian Geologist Jeffrey E. Post, it is the most special gemstone from the rest of their collection having the most extraordinary history behind it and being the largest blue diamond in the world.
