    The beauty of a diamond established upon its visual appearance, and the impression of this stunning pear-shaped diamond is instantly obvious. The highest colour grade of D colour and inclusion-free clarity are key attributes to this diamond’s value, but the distinguished crispness of its crystal is what heightens this specimen’s singularity. It is largely because this diamond falls into the category of Type IIa classification which makes up only 2% of all natural diamonds. Free from nitrogen, Type IIa diamonds are characterized by their ‘whiter than white’ appearance. The sublime cutting and manipulation of its proportions is the other reason for its striking beauty. In this diamond, one observes a delicate balance of brilliance and scintillation, which translates to a vivid brightness and vivacious fire. Such a well-rounded layout is extremely scarce in a pear-shaped diamond, not to mention that it weighs over 10 carats, which only exemplifies its unique charm and rarity.
