The Grace Diamond is among the rarest pink diamonds in the world. Maison Mazerea, the world’s first Haute Diamanterie brand, announces the Grace Diamond, in honour of Princess Grace of Monaco and in exclusive collaboration with the Princess Grace Foundation. Distinguished by an extraordinary blushing radiance, the natural stone is one of the rarest pink diamonds in the world.
Discovered in the now-exhausted Argyle Mine and purchased by Burgundy Diamond Mines (owner of Maison Mazerea) in 2021, the Fancy Vivid Purplish-Pink diamond was originally called Argyle Stella TM, one of the last five Hero stones to emerge from the legendary source. With a remarkable natural beauty, every facet of the square radiant stone has been lovingly positioned, cut and hand-polished by two Master Craftsmen of exceptional skill and expertise, who have now joined Maison Mazerea.
The Grace Diamond will be presented in coming years in successive jewellery designs by some of the world’s leading or emerging designers. For the debut appearance this year, Maison Mazerea has partnered with renowned Place Vendôme designer-jeweller Lorenz Bäumer on “La Vie en Rose”, a sublime creation featuring the captivating beauty of the Grace Diamond.
“The majestic diamond is a fitting tribute to the Princess and supports our mission to uphold the legacy of Princess Grace for generations to come,” said Brisa Carleton, CEO of Princess Grace Foundation.
Peter Ravenscroft, CEO of Burgundy Diamond Mines, shares that sentiment. “It is entirely appropriate that an illustrious star such as Stella should be renamed and transcend into the timeless nobility of the Grace Diamond. As we work with the Princess Grace Foundation and selected jewellery designers on future jewellery pieces to showcase the Grace Diamond, we will pay enduring tribute to both Princess Grace and to the historical significance of this stone.”
