Sold in 1950 by Harry Winston to a private collector, it remained nameless until British diamond dealer Laurence Graff bought it at the 2010 auction and named it Graff Pink. It was mounted on a silver ring and set between smaller shield-shaped diamonds. However, it displayed 25 natural flaws, so Graff improved the potentially flawless diamond by polishing off only a few points. The result was a 23.88-carat Fancy Vivid Pink, emerald-cut, internally flawless diamond.

1454Letter from Down Under: Hugging it out and cooking up a stormChris Sheedy is an official Guinness World Records adjudicator based in Australia. In a new feature on the site, Chris takes a look over some Officially Amazing events that have recently taken place across Australia and New Zealand.It’s been an emotional few months here in the land of Oz, with two major hugging records in close succession. But they were well and truly balanced out by the fists of fury in the world’s largest boxing lesson.In a part of the world where records usually involve sport, fitness, outdoor adventure and other such admirable, active and sweaty pursuits, it has been a refreshing change to experience several liberal doses of red-hot romance recently.It began when I found myself choked up with emotion in a Fiji Airways A330. We were at 41,000 feet above the north island of New Zealand, about to head north to Nadi in Fiji, when an on-board wedding began.I had originally expected the applicants for the world’s highest altitude wedding to have perhaps participated for a joke, or as a result of a dare, or for a free holiday in Fiji. But instead I found five couples who were bringing new meaning to the phrase ‘love is in the air’. They were as in the moment as they would have been in a chapel.videoTo be an invited guest, and a witness, at their weddings in the intimate confines of a business class cabin, I realised, was a great and special honour. And for a Guinness World Records adjudicator who had attended in the not-so-distant past a tyre-shredding attempt at the biggest simultaneous burnout (68 cars at the Summernats, Australia’s biggest revhead event - see clip below), it was certainly a different experience!videoMore recently I was again reminded of the passion and excitement that comes with a world record attempt. It was during the final stage of the longest marathon hug in Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Seven cuddling couples - all of whom were bleary eyed and suffering lower back pain, aching feet and crippling muscle cramps in their shoulders, necks and legs - gazed sleepily out at the iconic harbour view. They had hugged for over 25 hours and looked a little bit like they’d had enough.But as the 15-minute countdown to 26 hours began they bucked up and began to smile. They held each other more closely and looked into their partners’ eyes, enjoying each other’s company and revelling in the moment.“I had thought this record was a bit silly,” said a woman next to me in the early morning audience. “But now I see what it’s all about. It’s lovely!”And it was. The seven surviving couples, from an original group of 12 pairs, had just achieved something that nobody else in the world had ever done. Plus they now had a brilliant story to tell their families and friends and, perhaps later on, their children. That day their love was sealed. Either that or they’d now never want to see each other again…A few weeks later a charming TV star by the name of Carrie Bickmore, pictured above, delighted many of her fans when she offered them free hugs, as long as they were quick. The event, at a children’s hospital in Sydney, saw two failed attempts at the most hugs in 60 seconds by Fiona Sutton, National Director of Children's Hospitals. The number to beat was 75 hugs and after her attempts at the surprisingly physical record, Fiona moved over to give Carrie a shot. Sixty seconds and 77 hugs later, Carrie was the southern hemisphere’s newest record holder.After all of that amorous behaviour it was almost a relief to join the pugilistic hordes at the largest boxing class.Guy Leech, a legendary Aussie ironman and regular breaker of mass participation fitness records - and the healthiest looking 50-year-old on the planet - added another certificate to his trophy room when 508 people turned up to hook and jab their way to a new world record.videoThe previous record, also broken in Sydney, had stood at 452.The month ended with a flash of bulbs as Priceline Pharmacy brought together 279 of their most passionate Sisterhood (the brand’s charity) supporters to take photos of themselves. The record was the longest selfie chain, and after a long and suspenseful wait to find out whether enough happy snappers would show up to break the record the selfies, of the ‘photographer’ and the person next to them, began.videoTwo hours later the record was broken, but only just. At 267, the previous record had been bettered by 12 people.That very same morning in another part of Sydney, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day kicked off with a world record when supermarket group Woolworths brought together 2,150 school children for the most participants in a cookery lesson. The resulting meal was a tasty end to an officially amazing period of record breaking Down Under.

1460Basketball fans clap their way to high five record in Las VegasFrom Morgan Wilber in Las Vegas, USASaint Mary and Gonzaga supporters rushed into the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on earlier this month for the West Coast Conference (WCC) Men's Championship game.To the fans surprise, they were not there to just cheer on their college basketball team, but would also take part in a Guinness World Records attempt for the most people performing a high five simultaneously.

With much planning, several record announcements, a demonstration of a proper high five on the court during half time, and a practice run for everyone in the arena, the participants were ready for the record attempt. I was present as the official adjudicator, but had numerous witnesses to help me count. We all had designated sections to count and witness the actual high five gesture. The game was extremely close, with only a few points difference, cultivating immense excitement and competition amongst the crowd. At a break during the second half, we geared up and the packed stands took a moment to find a buddy prepare and when the buzzer sounded for the five second time frame, the participants throughout the arena raised their arms and simultaneously slapped a high five. It was quite remarkable to witness and hear the noise of a high five made by thousands. After final counts were collected, I was able to announce a new Guinness World Records feat by and all of the participants present at the Orleans Arena with 3,504 people performing a high five simultaneously.

1466Film fans celebrate 25th anniversary of Ferris Bueller release with world recordFrom Mike Janela in ChicagoWhether they like to admit it or not, everybody has a little Ferris Bueller in them - the urge to kick back, get away, and take it easy once in a while. Because, as Ferris said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."This carefree attitude helped make "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" a movie smash upon its release in 1986 and a cherished classic in the years after.So beloved, in fact, that the deal-a-day organization Groupon was able to get a crowd of more than 9,000 to an outdoor screening of the film at Chicago's historic Wrigley Field in celebration of the movie's 25 th anniversary. If you recall, Chicago is where Ferris and his friends enjoyed the best day of their lives in the film.As part of the festivities, a smaller contingent within the general audience was tasked with attempting a Guinness World Records feat for the "most people singing in a round." For those of you unfamiliar, singing in a round is when two or more groups sing the same song but begin at different times, leading to a harmonious discord made famous in many renditions of nursery rhymes like "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."Groupon decided to have its chosen record attempters sing "Danke Schoen," one of Ferris Bueller's favorite songs and made famous during the legendary parade scene from the movie, seen here:videoIn the end, a total of 897 participants crooned in the round about how they recall Central Park in fall before settling in to enjoy the film screening. Among the witnesses helping assist me with verifying the musical quality was Jimmy Chamberlain, Chicago local and former drummer for The Smashing Pumpkins, who couldn't help but suppress a smile as the crowds sang in unison.Having already successfully organized a record-breaking attempt for the largest speed dating event in Chicago earlier this year, Groupon proved its record-worthy mettle in securing a second GWR certificate for the Windy City.And that's something even Ferris Bueller would pay attention to.
