It's not for nothing that Laurence Graff, founder of Graff Diamonds, is known as the 'king of diamonds'. Few would dare to create a diamond brooch in the form of a peacock worth a staggering US$100 million, making it perhaps the most valuable brooch made in recent history. A powerful statement that reinforces Graff's claim to dominance - and extravagance - in the world of diamonds. 

The Peacock brooch was unveiled at Maastricht's TEFAF fair, where the wealthiest collectors of fine art and antiques gather to peruse some of the most precious objects in the world. Few objects on show will be able to compete for wow factor, or price tag. 1,305 diamonds adorn this precious bird, including some highly valuable coloured diamonds totalling 120.81ct.

The star of the piece is a 20.02ct pear-shaped Fancy Deep Blue diamond. Fanning out from this stellar blue diamond is an array of white, pink, yellow, orange and even green diamonds that dazzle the eye. Should you want to go for a more low-key look, the blue diamond centre piece can be detached and worn separately.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
