Patience and Precision

In 2008 the Wittelsbach resurfaced and was acquired by Laurence Graff, who recognised the potential to bring new brilliance and colour to the stone, without compromising its charm, heritage or historical character.

Great sensibility and skill were needed during an operation fraught with dangers to subtly re-polish the famous stone, all the while retaining its original features.

“The diamond had many imperfections, besides wear marks it was chipped and it had an extra large culet. Although the risk was enormous, I had all the confidence I needed in my craftsmen to deliver a more magnificent and beautiful stone”.
