Sold in 2007 by renowned jeweler, Robert Mouawad, this splendid diamond was named “The Star of Stanley Ho, Grand Lisboa, Macau” to give tribute to Dr. Stanley Ho’s contributions to the development of the gaming industry of Macau. The largest, flawless, cushion diamond in the world, weighing 218.08 carats and graded by the Gemological Institute of America as a D-IF with excellent polish and symmetry.
This remarkable diamond now belongs to the Property of Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, S.A. (SJM) and is on public display at Casino Grand Lisboa. Dr Ho says “the diamond represents a timeless quality that reflects SJM’s timeless commitment to Macau and its people”. Robert Mouawad says, "Each diamond is unique and has its own personality traits."
The carat weight, quality grade and the immortal character are all factors that contribute to the overall beauty of a stone, but it is the human touch from the rough to polished stage that unveils its beauty and mystique.” Mouawad continues, “it was a distinct privilege to be a part of this diamond’s history and I am delighted to turn its legacy over to the next owner.”
