A seven-foot wide blue diamond could fetch a pretty penny at auction.

A replica sculpture of the jewel is the highlight of Christie's Galleries post-war and contemporary art sale.

Designer Jeff Koons says even though it's not real, it's the epitome of what a blue diamond should be in today's world of wealth and luxury.

The Blue Diamond was on display — just for the day — on Friday at the Christie's entrance at Rockefeller Plaza.

It will be auctioned off in November and could get as much as $12 million.
