The ultimate Valentine's Day gift: 110 carat diamond

It's the ultimate Valentine's Day gift you wish you were getting: a 110 carat diamond.

Diamond company Cora International has acquired a 110.03 carat diamond that they're calling the Cora Sun Drop, the largest vivid yellow pear-shaped diamond known in the world. Cora International's CEO Suzette Gomes is giving American Morning an up-close look of the diamond. Can you guess how much it's worth?

    Lori, the company representative clearly mentioned that the diamond is NOT a CONFLICT diamond. They said that all their stones comply with the Kimberly Treaty which forbids conflict diamonds. It's a beautiful stone and there is no reason for the "conflict" negativity about it. It's simply stunning!

    Don't get me wrong, I like diamonds, but does anyone know if this 110 carat yellow diamond is a "blood" diamond or not?
