De Beers recently hosted a one-of-a-kind exhibition in Hong Kong that shone the spotlight on a diamond’s journey from rough to a polished treasure.
At the centre of The Home of Diamonds Since 1888 Exhibition was a 117-carat rough diamond, a rare natural find acclaimed for its exceptional carat weight and attractive colour, according to De Beers.
The exhibit also displayed the Talisman Wonder, which the company described as “a unique oeuvre d’art and the ultimate expression for the art of diamond jewellery.” The piece was crafted for over 2,000 hours, it added.
“At De Beers Diamond Jewellers, we know that the most peerlessly beautiful polished diamonds start life as beautiful rough diamonds. Mother Nature creates rough diamonds in a plethora of sizes, shapes and colours, each with their own personality,” noted the company. “For more than 125 years, De Beers has been the diamond expert, embodying the timeless allure and mystique of diamonds.”
The Home of Diamonds Since 1888 exhibition was held at the Landmark Atrium in Central from June 14 to 20.
