|Forevermark has announced that the largest Forevermark diamond in the world has been unveiled by Chow Tai Fook, a Forevermark Diamantaire and Authorised Forevermark Jeweller, at a press event in Hong Kong on September 3rd.
The 104-carat diamond was reportedly cut and polished by master craftsmen at Chow Tai Fook, over a period of three years, resulting in a ‘D' colour, internally flawless (DIF), round brilliant cut diamond with the highest possible cut grade of 3-Excellent.
Forevermark reports that the diamond was graded and inscribed with the Forevermark icon and identification number at the Forevermark Diamond Institute in Antwerp. The diamond was assessed five times, says the announcement "to ensure Forevermark's strict beauty and symmetry requirements had been achieved. The diamond was given a bespoke inscription number, 20090950755, chosen to signify the recovery date (200909) and the carat weight (507.55) of the rough diamond discovered in Southern Africa."
Stephen Lussier, Forevermark CEO, remarked, "This is a truly extraordinary Forevermark diamond and showcases just how magnificent these treasures of nature can be. Forevermark diamonds like this are the epitome of our promise and commitment to beautiful, responsibly sourced diamonds of the highest quality."The 104-carat diamond has been set in a jewelry piece entitled, ‘A Heritage in Bloom', which was created by jewelry artist Wallace Chan. The jewelry piece can reportedly be worn in 27 different ways, which has a significance rooted in the Chinese concept of eternity, says Forevermark.
