A gem of exceptional quality with a D color grading, this Internally Flawless stone is sure to make you wonder, “How much is a real diamond ring set with that stone going to cost someone?” At present, there is no way of knowing, because this gem is still part of a loose stone collection owned by Lebanese gem magnate Robert Mouawad.
Cut in the pear shape, this breathtaking diamond possesses unique clarity and color, as well as excellent proportions that deliver magnificent sparkle. It is easily on any list of the top gemstones in the world unless said list only includes relatively affordable stones. It even inspired a CZ replica-studded Fantasy Bra, which was modeled by Karolina Kurkova.
The Mouawad Mondera ranks 11th by size in the Mouawad diamond collection and is the 4th biggest gem carrying the Mouawad name. It first showed up at a Christie’s auction in 2000, where Robert Mouawad acquired it with a winning bid of US $ 5,360,000, allowing his already impressive private diamond collection to expand further.
