Transforming a diamond from its rough form into a scintillating masterpiece is an art which few will inherently understand. It requires precision of the steadiest hand and an obsessive passion for unlocking perfection. In 2009, a perfectly formed octahedral yellow diamond rough, weighing 221.81 carats, was unearthed at an alluvial mine in South Africa. The size, colour and quality of the stone left Graff astounded and the journey to perfection began. After nearly a year of meticulous cutting and polishing at the hands of a Master Cutter, the stone yielded the largest Fancy Vivid Yellow square emerald cut diamond in the world at 118.08 carats. Reminiscent of the warm glow of dawn from Delaire Graff Estate, the diamond was aptly named, the Delaire Sunrise.
