A pair of odd-coloured diamonds have become the world's most expensive earrings by selling for a staggering £45 million. The Apollo and Artemis Diamonds are described as "truly exceptional stones" that are in a "class of their own" as a pair.

Apollo is a 14.54 carat vivid blue diamond which has been cut and polished into a pear shape. Artemis is a 16 carat fancy intense pink diamond. Both gems are phenomenally rare, with less than 0.1 per cent of diamonds having any blue in them.
