South China Morning Post : An exceptionally-sized diamond ring bought for £10 (HK$100) at a junk sale was sold at a staggering £656,750 at Sotheby’s in London yesterday – after it turned out to be a 26.27ct cushion-shaped white diamond

South China Morning Post: QUOTE: It is believed that the ring was once owned by the royal family or a person of great wealth. “It originated from the 1800s – before the discovery of modern diamond mines and a time when very few diamonds were available,” Kormind says.
“The new owner is likely to re-cut it into a modern diamond that will emit even more sparkle and potentially be worth a multiple of today’s price.” END OF QUOTE
