Last April, we mentioned the first ring made entirely of diamond. What was just a concept then, and design on paper is a reality now? Geneva-based jeweler Shawish unveiled the world’s first all-diamond ring at Basel 2012. This blindingly dazzling ring is made from 150 brut carats rough diamond from Brazil. To cut the diamond and shape it into this unique ring, Mr. Shawish developed a copyrighted process. He and his technician successfully developed laser equipment that allowed them to cut directly into the diamond. It took them almost a year to develop the process.
The color of the diamond ring is certified an E and the clarity is VS1. Although the final weight of the ring is unknown, it is valued at approximately $77 million.
