Looking for some serious bling? A 9.54-carat blue diamond worn by Shirley Temple could be yours – assuming you have $25 million or more to spare.

According to The Associated Press, the massive rock, which Temple's father bought for the actress for her 12th birthday in 1940, will hit the auction block April 19 at Sotheby's "Magnificent Jewels" event in New York. The cushion-cut stone is set in platinum with diamonds, and the auction will also include a gold setting for the ring.
