THE ELUSIVE BEAUTY OF DIAMOND
The value of a diamond is not defined only through its certificate but must first be appreciated by sight. The “water”, the brilliance of a stone is unique and sometimes escapes the classification grids of color and clarity.
The value of certain stones, we think of those of type IIa, is often inexplicable as their beauty takes precedence over their certified qualities. The one we present here is undeniably part of this rare group, undoubtedly extracted from an old mine.
