World's Most Expensive Pair of Earrings

Who would have known that a pair of mis-matched earrings would become one of the most expensive earrings to ever be sold at an auction; EVER! The 14.54 carat, blue/pink combo sold for a total of $40+ million. The auction was held by Sotheby's. 

The correct name for this dynamic duo is actually called, "Apollo and Artemis Diamonds", each stone being named after a Greek God. Sotheby's often does well selling colored gems and stones.
