Look at this giant white diamond!

This is for all the ladies who say diamonds are a girl's best friend.

A New York auction house is showing off a 118-carat white diamond that's the size of an egg.

It will be auctioned in Hong Kong on October 7 and has a pre-sale estimate of $28 million to $35 million.

It's the greatest white diamond to be offered at auction in terms of size, quality, polish and color.

It was discovered in 2011 as a 299-carat rough diamond in Africa, but had to have some work done to it.
