Diacore Diamond Group and De Beers have recently collaborated in the purchase of a 39.34 ct rare blue diamond, which was discovered in the world-renowned Cullinan Diamond Mine. This is not the first time the two groups had a joint venture. Last year Diacore and De Beers acquired 5 blue diamonds in a total weight of 85.62 carats.
Paul Rowley, Executive Vice President of Diamond Trading, De Beers Group, said: “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with such a miracle of nature and a delight to see the legendary Cullinan deposit producing yet another breathtakingly beautiful gemstone”.
“We’re excited and humbled to have the opportunity of designing and shaping one of the most special and rare blue diamonds of such size and color. Joining forces with De Beers specialists alongside our master cutters will enable us to create a world-class masterpiece”, said Nir Livnat, the executive chairman of Diacore.
