Graff Diamonds is celebrating the opening of its new Paris boutique next to the Ritz Paris, named “Graff Vendôme”, in style: the diamond and jewelry company has recently unveiled the “Graff Vendôme” diamond – a 105.07-carat D flawless pear shaped diamond.
According to Forbes, the polished stone was created from a 314-carat rough unearthed in the southern African Kingdom of Lesotho.
Graff explains that the magnificent polished stone was created following a 3D computerized mapping of the rough diamond and “many months” of work by Graff’s master cutters. The result: the largest cut and polished diamond of its kind in Graff’s history.
The 314-carat rough was also used to create 12 additional diamonds. The largest is a 17.10 carat stone, and nine others have received the classification of D flawless – the highest color and clarity grading for a colorless diamond.
