With the big black carbon spot in the middle of the table, I would call it an I3. The Lamborghini has an attractive red color. The diamond does not. Not worth a fraction of the 2 million + asking price. Yes red is very rare but ugly is ugly.

How big is your ugly red duck ?
Event though it might be 5 carats +, you will get the Lambo for a micro-fraction of this price per carat. And attract more ladies. :lol:

That stone is 1.32ct. The N.Y. diamond dealer that sends me these offers has some smaller nice reds .But again 2 or 3 supercars or a 4mm. 1/3 ct. stone. You might be onto something with the Lambo Isi, the Corolla really isn't cutting it with the ladies. :D

How about a few kilos of fine topaz, a stunning suite of cat's eye nephrite, several dozen spinel suites, a spectrum of trapiche sapphires and a star garnet the size of a tangerine, and retire on the remainder.

Or you could go to the movies and get a large popcorn.
