The largest-ever D-flawless diamond to be put up for auction, mounted in a diamond and emerald necklace, has sold for $33.7 million at Christie's in Geneva, including buyer's fees. The white, matchbox-size "Creation 1" diamond from Swiss jeweler de Grisogono weighs a whopping 163 carats, the AP reports. The buyer was not immediately identified.
