Graff Diamonds Unveil $100m Brooch at TEFAF

By Paul Joseph

London-based jeweller Graff Diamonds has unveiled a stunning brooch at the TEFAF arts fair in Maastricht, Holland priced at a cool $100 million.

Measuring just over 10cm in height, the Peacock brooch is made with 120.81 carats of natural colour diamonds.

The centrepiece of the brooch pin is a 20.02-carat fancy deep blue pear-shaped diamond billed as one of the rarest blue diamonds in the world, whilst surrounding the stone is an array of white and coloured diamonds, all set at the Graff workshop in London.

The piece also features an additional clasp in the rear that allows the blue diamond centrepiece to be removed and worn in two separate ways.

Graff Diamonds has become a regular presence at the annual TEFAF show, having previously debuted their “Gemini Yellows,” a pair of 50-plus carat yellow diamond earrings, and the “Flame,” a 100-carat, pear-shaped D flawless diamond, at the event.

First held in 1975, TEFAF has grown to become one of the world’s most important fairs for art and antiques.

The 2013 edition of TEFAF runs until March 24th.
