THE MILLION-DOLLAR Ice Cream Cone ... No, I’m not a six-pack short of a case.

The 20-troy-ounce cone has 548 round diamonds, 87 square emerald-cut diamonds, and a 5.63-carat radiant-cut diamond. It’s for sale; the entire thing is tax deductible with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
