You might not have noticed it, but David Diamond’s diamond ring is now a thing of the past.
The Australian billionaire, who is the world’s richest person with a net worth of $21.6bn, has been forced to sell the diamond, valued at $4.5bn, after the US Drug Enforcement Administration raided his Beverly Hills estate.
A US court last week granted the government a preliminary injunction to stop Mr Diamond from selling the diamond.
It’s the latest in a series of legal challenges to Mr Diamond’s wealth.
Mr Diamond has been accused of using his money to fund the illegal drug trade.
He has denied any wrongdoing.
But the ring, once a staple of his signature look, has now become an international symbol of the wealth and power of the billionaire.
It is the reason the world now considers the diamond diamond an icon, said David Diamond, who founded the Diamond and Pearl diamond company in 1964.
Mr and Mrs Diamond were married in 2006.
They had three children.
Mr diamond, the richest person in the world, said his family had bought the diamond in the 1970s and kept it as a keepsake.
“It was an amazing piece of jewelry,” he said.
It was a piece of art, not something you would get, said Mrs Diamond.
The diamond ring has been a symbol of power, of wealth, of power and of powerlessness, said Mr Diamond.
“I’m not a big fan of gold or diamonds, but when you have a diamond, it becomes a symbol,” he told ABC TV.
When the diamond was first bought, Mr Diamond was a star attraction at the Beverly Hills mansion.
He would take his wife and children to his mansion on the grounds and invite them over for dinner, he said, adding that they had become his personal security.
At the time, the diamond had been in the hands of a collector, Mr Daniel, who had acquired it for $1.5m.
After a year, the collector began to sell it.
Mr Diamond had been invited to the estate in 2006 for dinner.
In 2007, the estate began to lose value.
On one occasion, Mr Gold’s bodyguard was shot and killed in an altercation outside the mansion, and the diamonds collection was sold off, said the couple.
However, the diamonds remained in the collection for a decade, Mr diamond said.
The family were now on a “wet” streak, he added.
As the property deteriorated, the couple took a step back and started planning their retirement.
While they were planning their plans, the police were called, Mr gold said.
They were arrested and charged with drug trafficking and assault.
Then, in 2012, a grand jury indicted the couple on charges of money laundering, money laundering and conspiracy.
They were released on $50,000 bail.
That same year, a Los Angeles jury indicted Mr Gold and his wife on drug trafficking, conspiracy and money laundering charges.
Since then, the two have been held in Los Angeles’ Central Jail without bail.
