Shirley Temple's blue diamond

Actress Shirley Temple was 12 and had just filmed The Blue Bird when her father gave her a 9.54-carat diamond, a superb blue that was chosen to reflect the color of the movie poster. Purchased in 1940 for $ 7,200, Sotheby’s now estimate its value at between $25 million and $35 million and will sell it at auction on April 19th in New York.
