Venus Rising

‘We were given a once in a lifetime opportunity with the Graff Venus and we created absolute perfection. I am proud to say that we delivered the very best,’ says Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds on the exclusive unveiling of the world’s largest D Flawless heart-shaped diamond. Weighing in at an astounding 118.78 carats with excellent polish and symmetry, it’s a veritable work of art.

From discovery to completion, the process of analysis, cutting and polishing took 18 months. ‘The Graff Venus is testament to the skill and expertise of our elite team,’ continues Graff.

Over half of the world’s top 20 largest diamonds discovered this century have been cut and polished by Graff, the Venus being no exception. As this has never been attempted before, special tools were developed in order to cut the Graff Venus and the process required the world’s most skilled and experienced diamond craftsmen. ‘The stone itself is beyond words. It is the most beautiful heart-shape diamond I have ever seen,’ concludes Graff.
