Three years in the making, jewelers at Shawish Jewelry in Switzerland have announced the creation of a 150 carat faceted diamond ring! The kicker - the entire ring is made from one stone! As Mohamed Shawesh, CEO of Shawish, describes, it wasn't an easy task!
"The most important aspect is preserving the integrity of the diamond and of course the most difficult phase is precision cutting an entire stone into a ring."
Our gemologists at MyTrioRings.com estimate the 150 carat ring was likely cut out of a rough diamond weighing between 400-500 carats (the size of a tennis ball). With a ring that trumps Kim Kardashian's mega 22 carat ring, our guess is another celebrity will be quick to scoop this up. Either that or one of the many elusive diamond investors throughout the world!
