Chopard recently unveiled an 85.28-carat emerald-cut diamond which it believes will earn a global fan following almost like the legendary Koh-I-Noor diamond. The diamond’s extreme purity and sparkling whiteness place it in the IIA class, an extremely rare and pure category accounting for approximately 1 percent of all diamonds. Stones of such perfection and such size historically originate from the Indian mines of Golconda. Golconda diamonds are among the most sought-after and celebrated in the world.
Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, Co-President of the House and Creative Director, said: “I love gems. I have seen a lot of them in my career, but the beauty of this particular one surpasses most others, and it is truly exceptional.” Chopard is now looking at creating the perfect jewellery piece suited for the diamond.
