The gem has a hefty price tag, with the likely buyer expected to pay in excess of £5 million.

But there is still a bit of time to save up, with Christie's selling the item in Geneva in May.

The diamond is cut to a perfectly symmetrical heart. It is one of only a handful of 50 carat-plus jewels to be offered in an auction over the last 20 years.

Part of Christie's Magnificent Jewels collection, the item has an estimated price tag of between £5.6 million and £7.5 million.
