'Apollo and Artemis Diamonds' could make $ 68m

Sotheby's said it would auction a pair of "phenomenally rare" blue and pink diamond earrings next month that together may fetch up to $68 million. The 'Apollo and Artemis Diamonds' will be the stars of the May sale in Geneva.
The 14.54-carat Apollo Blue is estimated to fetch between $38 million and $50 million. The 16-carat Artemis Pink is expected to rake in $12.5-18 million.

The diamonds were named after Apollo, the Greek god of music and of the Sun, and Artemis, his twin sister, who was goddess of the hunt and of the Moon.
