Chopard recently unveiled a magnificent 85-carat emerald-cut diamond. A fabulous diamond marked by purity and great whiteness is rivaled only by some of the world’s biggest diamonds: the legendary Koh-I-Noor, the 105.6-carat Golconda diamond set on the crown of England, or the Regent, formerly worn by Queen Marie-Antoinette and currently preserved in the Louvre Museum.
Originating from the Indian mines of Golconda which are well known for their perfect white colour, distinctive lustre and transparency, Golconda diamonds are amongst the most sought-after in the world. And this one is no different, possessing extreme limpidty, whiteness and clarity that places it in the IIA class, n extremely rare and pure category accounting for approximately 1% of all diamonds.
Chopard entrusts this precious gem to none other than Co-President of the House and Creative Director, Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, who travels the world to find such treasures and employs the help of designers in the Haute Joaillerie department to create the kinds of pieces for which Chopard is so highly exhaulted.
It is now in the hands of Chopard’s production team to create a piece of dazzling jewelry around this unique stone.
