When it comes to high-end jewellery, diamond enthusiasts at the second day of the Dubai Diamond Conference 2017, were treated to the sight of a 163.41-carat flawless diamond set within a necklace, that will soon go under the hammer at a Christie’s auction in Geneva.
The mapping, cleaving, laser-cutting and polishing of the 404-carat rough by experts in New York resulted in a 163.41-carat diamond, later categorised by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), as D colour and flawless.
The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) facilitated the acquisition of the rights for the 404-carat rough diamond to de Grisogono, and showcased the diamond at a special event in May last year. Ahmed bin Sulayem, executive chairman of DMCC, together with founder and creative director of de Grisogono, Fawaz Gruosi, had earlier noted that a “lot of beautiful creations” would come out of the rough diamond.
