Baselworld is the greatest watch and jewellery show on the planet, and its the place to spot fabulous diamonds and amazing gemstones, with price tags that would make even the wealthiest wince, or at least think twice. Here's what most impressed The Jewellery Editor team.

New York's Jacob & Co does bling on a grand scale, and is particularly known for its coloured diamonds. These fancy light blue and fancy pink diamond earrings, are fifteen carats each.

Mr Jacob Arabo: "The reason these earrings are so special, is because "one is a blue diamond, one is a pink diamond, and they perfectly match. That makes these earrings one of a kind. The price of the earrings, you could compare it to a
private jet."

Another high roller, is New York house Bayco, that has a keen eye for the very best in the big three stones. With prices for top quality stones on the rise, buyers are investing in the most rare and exquisite examples. And this year Bayco present this impressive Burmese sapphire necklace,

Marco Hadjibay: "The necklace is a 60ct natural unheated sapphire, it comes from Burma, it is unique because of its beautiful clarity and color and, the necklace is $4,000,000".

The choice is yours private jet or diamond earrings. Either way any of these gemstones are guaranteed to impress and they're certainly hard to beat.
