Kim Rothstein, the wife of the jeweler Scott Rothstein, is said to have hidden a rare 12.08 carat yellow diamond from federal authorities that is estimated to be worth about $403,012. That was the stone's worth when her husband bought it for her in 2008. Now, the diamond is said to be worth about $450,000. Mrs. Rothstein has also been accused of hiding more than $1 million worth of jewelry from federal law enforcement, including the yellow diamond.
