The Spirit of De Grisogono Diamond
The Spirit of De Grisogono is the fifth largest diamond in the world as well as being the world’s largest cut black diamond. Mined decades ago in Central Africa, the original rough weighed some 587 carats. It was imported into Switzerland where it was cut using the Mogul cutting technique by Swiss jeweller De Grisogono. The whole process of design and execution lasted a whole year and resulted in a finished gem weighing 312.24 carats.
Sold to a private buyer
The stone was mounted in white gold set with 702 white diamonds totalling 36.69 carats. The stone is reported to have since been sold by Fawaz Gruosi, founder and president of De Grisogono, to a private client.
