A rare rough diamond was unearthed from the Cullinan mine in South Africa by Petra Diamonds. That gemstone was cut from a 299.3-carat rough stone and acquired by Stargems Group last year. Stargems Group chose to reveal this  one-of-a-kind 103.49-carat polished diamond at the prestigious Dubai Diamond Conference, held in the iconic Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah this month. This Dubai-based Group, has a legacy of over 40 years in the diamond industry and holds prominence in manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing, and tendering of diamonds.

The unique gemstone is a D-Flawless, Type II-A, emerald cut diamond and inspires awe at sight, catching and reflecting light for mesmerising effect. Type II A diamonds are one of the world’s most rare and highest valued diamonds, representing only 1-2% of all mined diamonds in the world due to their purity and rarity. The Cullinan Mine has a rich history of producing the world’s largest and highest quality stones, including Type II stones. This legacy, paired with the expert craftsmanship of the Stargems diamond cutters, has given rise to a precious and unparalleled gemstone set to make waves in the industry.

The Dubai Diamond Conference, bringing together the world’s most notable industry leaders, provided the perfect opportunity to showcase the exquisite stone. The international conference was held under the theme "The Future of Diamonds", addressed market trends, insights, and the resilience of the diamond in challenging economic conditions. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, and CEO, DMCC, attended and opened the event, which sold out to an audience of 800 attendees.

StargemsGroup Chairman, Shailesh Javeri commented: “Acquiring the rough stone from Petra Diamonds last year was a significant achievement for us and it is an honour to unveil the polished diamond here at the Dubai Diamond Conference. It gives us enormous pride that the polished diamond was cut and polished in its birthplace of South Africa. StargemsPTY,a beneficiation license holder, is deeply invested in developing the skills of its employees. With high-quality tools, state-of-the-art equipment, and hands-on training, Stargems PTY ensures its proficiency in all areas of the rough beneficiation process to deliver an outstanding finished product.
