The De Young Red

The De Young Red is a red diamond weighing in at 5.03 carats. This stone was once bought at estate sale mistakenly as a red garnet! It is the third largest red diamond in the world. The second largest is simply known as the Red Diamond, an emerald cut weighing 5.05 carats. The diamond was found as a rough in South Africa in 1927, and was later bought and put in a private collection, unfortunately its whereabouts are presently unknown.
