Graf is creating the world's largest flawless heart-shaped diamond
To commemorate the Roman goddess of love, Graff recently named the world's largest D-color, flawless heart-shaped diamond "Venus".
The creation of a heart-shaped diamond is very demanding, and it can only be undertaken by the world’s elite diamond craftsmen. It must have perfect facets and complete symmetry to ensure perfect contours and delicate sparkles.
The rough diamond was discovered in the famous Letseng mining area in Lesotho. The rough stone weighs 357 carats. After 18 months of analysis, cutting and polishing by the Graff diamond craftsman, the diamond was finally cut into type IIa, weighing 118.78 carats Of diamonds.
Laurence Graff, head of Graff's brand, said: "We have a rare opportunity in our lives. We have created absolute perfection. I can proudly say that this Venus surpasses any language. It is the most beautiful I have ever seen. Heart shaped diamond."
In June last year, Graff opened its first Paris salon, next to the recently renovated Ritz Hotel, overlooking the iconic Place Vendome. The luxurious salon refers to the aesthetics of Paris in the 18th century, with feminine emerald tones, displaying the most legendary jewelry in the world. To celebrate its new store in the famous Place Vendôme, Graff displayed a 105.07 carat, D-color flawless pear-shaped Graff Vendôme diamond. This diamond was originally cut from a 314 carat rough stone from Lesotho and completely polished by hand. This is a process that requires great courage and craftsmanship.
The cutting process took several months. In this process, we selected a team with very exquisite craftsmanship to carry out. They applied their own jewelry experience over the years, even confidential craftsmanship, and the pairing they formed over the years. Instinctive talent for proportion and symmetry.
The rough stone also cut out 12 other diamonds, the largest of which is 17.10 carats, and this 105.07 carat Graff Vendôme is the largest cut and polished diamond of this type in Graff history.
