Jeweller’s $70m Diamond Ring Cut Entirely From One 150-carat Rock!

24 Mar

Want a diamond ring with a difference?

Shawish Jewellery, a company based in Geneva, Switzerland, has created a ring made from one enormous chunk of diamond, a dazzling piece of craftsmanship that they have billed as ‘the world’s first diamond ring’.

The 150-carat ring has been valued at around $70 million and took one year to construct as it was a challenging task to master. Unique laser equipment was purchased to ensure the quality of the diamond didn’t suffer through its construction. A hole was cut right through the middle of the huge rock!

It has completely shown up the biggest celebrity rocks on record, the most famous being Elizabeth Taylor’s 33.19-carat diamond ring which falls well short, not to mention Beyonce’s recent 18-carat engagement ring or Kim Kardashian’s 20.5-carat ring.. They might as well have been cubic zirconia in comparison to Shawish’s handiwork!

The incredible piece went on display at Baselworld 2012 last week, the annual watch and jewellery trade show staged in Switzerland.
