An exceptional Asscher-cut Golconda diamond weighing a monumental 28.16 carats serves as the focal point in this sumptuous ring. The gem is certified by the Gemological Institute of America as not only having D color, but being a type IIa, meaning that the stone is 2-3 shades whiter than other D color diamonds. Further, the GIA certifies that the diamond is both Internally and Externally Flawless, with excellent polish and symmetry. Set in a custom-made and signed Tiffany & Co. platinum setting, this Golconda diamond is undoubtedly one of the finest diamonds to ever grace our gallery.
First discovered in the riverbeds of India in the 9th century, Golconda diamonds (type IIa) are known as the “Ultimate Diamond.” This is the only mine where all of the diamonds were nitrogen-free, making them clearer and whiter than virtually every other diamond ever found.
As if the quality of the present gem was not impressive enough, this diamond was handcrafted in the highly desirable Asscher cut that further enhances its perfection. The patented 74-facet step cut arrangement results in a distinctive, sparkling effect called “the hall of mirrors” as it absorbs and reflects light from every angle. No detail was overlooked by Tiffany & Co. in creating this masterpiece, and this diamond is a remarkable, one-in-a-lifetime find.
