The Mouawad Kimberley Star began as a remarkable rough of over 160 carat discovered in an alluvial deposit in the Vaal River in South Africa in 2016. This geographic origin is shared with other renowned gems that include the Eureka, the Oppenheimer, and the Star of Africa. Like its famous relatives, the Mouawad Kimberley Star is larger and more color-saturated than a great many other stones found in the region. The shape of the Mouawad Kimberley Star creates a unique outline that is as reminiscent of the human face as the pear shape. The diamond was carefully fashioned to strike the right balance between weight retention and maximizing color reflection. This goal was achieved when the Gemological Institute of America issued a report stating the Mouawad Kimberley Star is the largest fancy vivid yellow modified pear brilliant-cut diamond they have ever graded. In addition, the prefect proportions and meticulous crafting of the diamond earned it the grade of excellent symmetry and polish. At a magical weight of 111.11 carat, the Fancy Vivid yellow Mouawad Kimberley Star achieved a unique and auspicious record. The classic yet unique beauty of the Mouawad Kimberley Star's cut will lead gem enthusiasts to appreciate the gem and its brilliant play of color for many generations to come.
