Graff unfurls - 'The Magnificence' - world's largest emerald cut diamond!

Jun '08
Graff from London, the diamond jewellery house extraordinaire recently acquired the world's largest emerald cut diamond.

Its sheer beauty and flawless aspect so captivated its legendary founder, Laurence Graff that he immediately named it 'The Magnificence'.

The flawless stone weighs an awesome 243.96 carats and is of exceptional quality.

As per diamond colour grading 'The Magnificence' is of the highest grade - a 'D' class diamond - as it is perfectly colourless, and therefore most rare and highly valuable.

It has been classified as 'Excellent' by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and has now been sold for an undisclosed sum.

Known the world over as the 'King of Diamonds' it is said that more diamonds have passed through Laurence Graff's hands than through the hands of any other individual in history since the past century.

These have ranged from centuries old stones rich in myth and fable to newly discovered stones such as 'The Magnificence' which are cut and polished to brilliance by Graff's experts.

An acknowledged name the world over, Graff continues to set unsurpassed standards of excellence in its field.

Among many of its famous discoveries is its recently acquired stone 'The Lesotho Promise' in late 2006 - a 603 carat diamond that is said to be the 15th largest diamond ever discovered that is both of exceptional clarity and colour, rated 'D' in diamond colour grading.

Of scintillating intensity and brilliance is 'The Hope of Africa' - a fancy yellow cushion cut diamond of 115.91 carats among a long and illustrious list of other outstanding stones.
