I couldn’t resist … May was supposed to be all about emeralds but this is too good not to share … Mattel has come out with a limited edition Hope Diamond Barbie doll featuring the infamous Hope Diamond now housed at the Smithsonian Institute. Hey girls, you may not be able to have the real Hope Diamond but you can have the Barbie for $79.95! Only 6,500 of these were made worldwide.
The real Hope Diamond …. Last year, I wrote about the Hope Diamond and a little bit of its history when I posted about our new Tavernier cut gemstones here.
