The World's Second Largest Rough Diamond Weighs 1758 Carats

- May 05, 2020-

According to news on January 22, recently, French luxury giant Louis Vuitton bought the world's second largest rough diamond "Sewelo" weighing 1758 carats, which may be cut and polished into jewelry in the future.


"Sewelo" originally meant "rare discovery". Diamond miner LUCARA mined the diamond in Botswana, Africa last April. It is reported that this is currently the second largest rough diamond.


At present, the largest rough diamond is "Cullinan" mined in South Africa in 1905, weighing up to 3106 carats. The largest diamond "Africa Star I" made of it weighs 530.2 carats and is inlaid in Queen Elizabeth II On the scepter of the world.


Reported that although the official purchase price of Louis Vuitton has not been announced, some experts said that the buyer must have a wealth of knowledge and judgment in jewelry before buying the diamond, otherwise the risk is quite high.
