Named in celebration of the Roman goddess of Love, The Graff Venus is the largest D Flawless heart shape diamond in the world.
The creation of a heart shape diamond is exceptionally demanding and can only be undertaken by the elite of the world’s diamond cutters, it must be perfectly faceted and entirely symmetrical to ensure a perfect silhouette and exquisite scintillation.
It took over 18 months for Graff’s master craftsmen to analyze, cut and polish the magnificent type IIa 118.78ct diamond from a 357ct rough diamond discovered at the famous Letseng mine in Lesotho.
Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds said: “We were given a once in a lifetime opportunity and we created absolute perfection. I am proud to say that we have delivered the very best. The Graff Venus is beyond words. It is the most beautiful heart shape diamond I have ever seen.”
