35.60 Carat Fancy PINK-BROWN DIAMOND Arrives In London
LONDON – A unique, fancy pink-brown colour, 35.60 carat cushion cut Forevermark diamond went on display today in the Tower of London to mark the very special occasion of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
As with all Forevermark diamonds, The Steinmetz Forevermark Jubilee Pink Diamond, features a unique inscription number on the table. For this very special date however, the diamond has been given a bespoke number, the year the Queen came to the throne, 1952, and the 60th year of her reign, 2012. From this point, this diamond, inscribed with 19522012, will forever be associated with this historic occasion.
Invisible to the naked eye, the inscription is only 1/5000th of a human hair deep, and can only be seen using a special viewer. Special photography has been used in the display to reveal the inscription for visitors. Forevermark diamonds are the world’s most carefully selected diamonds with less than 1 per cent of the world’s diamonds meeting the brand’s quality and responsible sourcing standards. Once these standards have been met, the diamond is eligible to bear the brand’s inscription that represents Forevermark’s promise that it is beautiful, rare and has been responsibly sourced.
Whilst all Forevermark diamonds are rare, the Steinmetz Forevermark Jubilee Pink Diamond is exceptionally so, thanks
FOREVERMARK – 17 CHARTERHOUSE STREET – LONDON – EC1N 6RA +44 (0)20 7858 7888 – FOREVERMARK.COMto its fancy pink-brown colour and remarkable size. As is fitting for such a unique diamond, it will form the centrepiece of a new display, charting its journey from the mine, through to cutting and polishing, and finally to the Martin Tower in the Tower of London. Specialist tools and rough and polished diamonds, will also be used to illustrate the master craftsmanship necessary to unleash the beauty of this remarkable gem. The experts at Steinmetz Diamonds took six months to perfect the cut of the diamond, crafting the beautiful cushion cut from the original 179.96 carat rough diamond.
The Martin Tower, within the Tower of London, is a fitting host to this exciting new exhibition as it was home to the Crown Jewels for nearly 200 years, from 1669 – 1841. The Crown Jewels are now displayed in the neighbouring Waterloo Barracks, and have recently undergone a major re-presentation to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, made possible thanks to the generosity of the De Beers Family of Companies.
