Exceptional as this can ever be: Graff Diamonds unveiled the Graff Venus, the biggest D Flawless heart-shaped diamond in the world.
The Graff Venus is the largest heart-shaped diamond, with its 118.78 carats.
It has been graded by GIA, the Gemological Institute of America, as D colour, Flawless and Type IIa with excellent cut, excellent symmetry and no fluorescence – the highest level of perfection a diamond could possibly obtain.
The Graff Venus is the result of 18 months of hard work on a rough of 357 carats discovered in 2015 at the Letseng mine, in Lesotho.
Considering the difficult task of cutting such a rough, specific tools were developed to cut the diamond, calling to action the most expert diamond cutters in the world.
As Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds, commented:
The Graff Venus gave us a unique opportunity and I am proud of saying that we created absolute perfection.
This unveiling speaks for Graff Diamond’s expertise, as more than 20 of the most important diamonds in the world unearthed in this century have been cut and polished by Graff. CC
