“I simply try one hundred per cent to make my jewellery the best it can possibly be.”
During the 69th Cannes Film Festival de GRISOGONO unveiled a diamond as big as 404 carats in the glamorous setting of the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. A mineral beauty called «The 14 Febreiro» was revealed to an audience of celebrities and VIP’s.
The astonishing rough diamond is characterized not only by its sheer size, an impressive 404 carats, but uniquely by its colourlessness and flawless clarity, making it the perfect diamond in de GRISOGONO’s pursuit for the most unique and precious stones. Representing one of the 30 largest top quality rough diamonds ever found, and the largest ever found in Angola, weighing 404 carats and characterized by an exceptional quality and clarity.
The exceptional size and clarity of this stone endow de GRISOGONO with a unique opportunity of cutting and polishing process. Working side by side with the best cutters, Fawaz Gruosi will now decide how best to cut this stone to give life to one of the most beautiful jewellery pieces ever created. Contrary to the traditional process, where jewellers are restricted to the polished stones that already exist in the market, with this partnership, de GRISOGONO will have the opportunity to bring its own jeweller’s perspective into the cutting process, maximizing the beauty of the final jewellery pieces.
“ I think in volumes, I imagine in colours, I design in lights.”
I cannot wait to see the final result… stay tuned!
