Graff Diamonds, an international luxury diamond and jewelry firm, has added a new statement diamond to its collection of the largest and rarest diamonds in the world.
This 132.55-carat Fancy Intense cushion-cut yellow diamond has been named “The Golden Empress,” and is set on a necklace with approximately 30 other yellow diamonds. Fancy colored diamonds occur in only one in every 10,000 diamonds discovered. This particular gem (299-carat rough) was unearthed at the Letseng mine in Lesotho.
This is not the first statement yellow diamond Graff Diamonds has dealt with; they have a long history of handling such rare jewels. They include “The Delaire Sunrise,” the largest square emerald cut, Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond in the world at 118.08 carats and the Graft Vivid Yellow at 100.09 carats.
