De Grisogono revealed the beautiful secret ‘The 14 Febreiro’ to an audience of celebrities and VIPs at Eden Roc Hotel, France. The glamorous setting was perfect for the unveiling of the incredibly big diamond – as big as 404 carat.
404 Carat ‘BIG’ Diamond
De Grisogono is a brand created by the black diamond specialist, Fawaz Gruosi. Its luxury jewellery is renowned the world over for Swiss precision and Gruosi’s eye for perfection. That such a brand should be home to a 404 carat diamond is in itself a news of historical significance.
The colourlessness and flawless clarity of this ‘mineral beauty’ makes it the perfect diamond in de Grisogono’s pursuit for the most unique and precious stones. This diamond represents one of the 30 largest top quality rough diamonds ever found, and the largest ever found in Angola.
It will offer de Grisogono with a unique opportunity at cutting and polishing. Gruosi, jeweler-watchmaker and head of de Grisogono, will work in tandem with the best cutters. He will decide how to cut this stone to create one of the most beautiful jewellery pieces of all times. In a break from orthodox jewellery making process, the brand will get to bring its own jeweller’s perspective into the cutting process. Such a move is bound to maximise the beauty of the final jewellery pieces.
The creative process is underway. It’s a matter of time before the world’ most exquisite jewellery piece made from the astonishing 404 carat de Grisogono diamond is unveiled.
