The incredible worth stems from 110 carats of really rare and really big colored diamonds set into a bracelet of platinum.Some of the rare diamond colors are Fancy Vivid Yellow, Fancy Intense Pink, Fancy Intense Blue, Fancy Light Pink, Fancy Light Grey Blue, Fancy Intense Blue, Fancy Green and Fancy Orange.Tens of thousands of Graff diamonds are cut and polished each year and the best of the best are used to create Graff jewelry. Graff is always looking for the rarest diamond, either in the raw or cut and polished.In his quest for the ultimate diamond, some of the most treasured gemstones have passed through his fingers.At first glance, one could hardly spot anything really tentative about Graff Diamonds' first appearance at Baselworld earlier this year.The booth, 503 square meters upon a single elevated space, was designed by Graff's Monaco-based interior design team in the likeness of a Graff Boutique.
By the time he was 24, he had already opened two of his own jewelry stores in London.The diamonds are cleverly hand fitted into the invisible platinum setting to create a multicolored bracelet heaving under the weight of its valuable load.Graff unveiled its line of luxury timepieces in 2009, and now boasts 50 models in 5 collections: Technical, Sport, Evening, Jeweled, and Bespoke.In 1973, he became the first jeweler to receive the Queens Award to Industry and Export. Today, the company has 45 stores around the globe with corporate offices in London, New York, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Graff was toying with the idea of creating the Graff Diamonds Hallucination timepiece for quite some time. Graff's words: "For many years I have thought about creating a truly remarkable watch that illustrates our all consuming passion for diamonds.The Hallucination has made my dream a reality." I must say, at first glance, I was quite amazed and horrified that a single timepiece could cost so much, but after delving into the process by which a single rare colored diamond is sourced from a rough stone; cut to perfection, polished, and finally set into the piece of jewelry or timepiece, I realized each and every diamond is a story unto itself.
