The rare 13.33-carat Lesotho Pink diamond becomes a 5.63-carat Graffiti ring ♦ ︎
Graff had purchased the 13.33 carat Lesotho Pink diamond for $ 8.75 million: a record for buying a diamond of this type in terms of dollar per carat. However, the stone was reduced with a pear cut at 5.63 carats. And now the stone shines on a ring. The London Maison, famous for its diamond jewelry, has unveiled the new ring with the “vivid purple-pink fantasy” diamond flanked by two pear-shaped stones with pear-shaped diamonds with an unusual “vibrant pink hue” color ”, mounted on a minimal rose gold ring.
According to Graff, his expert gemologists and master craftsmen have spent months analyzing the complexities of the diamond before devising the best way to capture the extraordinary beauty of its unusually vibrant pink hue. The stone was discovered in the Letseng mine in Lesotho in February. “The world’s already extremely limited resources of pink diamonds are quickly depleting, as the mines where these rarities are discovered gradually become extinct. They are highly sought after by those who want to enter the rarefied and exclusive group of connoisseurs who appreciate these precious pink stones for their sublime beauty. Graff searches timelessly for the very best examples displaying the most vivid and vibrant colour, identifying once in a lifetime discoveries and creating jewels that showcase their remarkable hues.”
