The Perfect Pair of Perfect Diamonds
Ultimate Perfection Meets Ultimate Precision
It boggles the mind to try to estimate the rarity of this pair of world class gems. The old adage “one in a million” would be way too conservative!
Two absolutely perfect AGS certified diamonds: Both D color and Internally Flawless, both perfectly crafted A CUT ABOVE® Super Ideals
, and each one weighing 1.06ct
D IF diamonds
are exceedingly scarce. The genesis of raw diamond crystals begins 20 miles below the crust of the earth under staggering pressures and temperatures. The mixture of minerals in the molten rock giving birth to diamonds insures that impurities and trace elements are present in virtually every diamond crystal that is formed. The violent volcanic journey necessary to bring diamond crystals to the surface of the earth insures that the vast majority have stress fractures and other defects. Hundreds of tons of earth must be moved in order to find even one tiny diamond crystal of perfect purity.
For the diamond connoisseur a perfectly matched pair of perfect one carat diamonds such as these is a once-in-a-lifetime acquisition. There may not be another pair of this quality anywhere in the world. And it may be years before another pair appears.
For the millions of people fascinated by the mysterious power of numerology, it is fitting that the number 106 has special significance: One is the leader- The number one indicates the ability to stand alone, and is a strong vibration - Ruled by the Sun. The number six is a loving, stable, and harmonious vibration - Ruled by Venus!
What a magnificent pair of diamond studs they would make for a strong and vibrant woman. Or imagine the ultimate gift for the two best daughters in the world!
Or what about going all the way to triple perfection by setting this pair shoulder to shoulder with a perfectly matched 2.10 ct D IF A CUT ABOVE®
Hearts and Arrows Super Ideal Round Cut Diamond in a new three stone diamond ring. Then you would be talking about a “trillion
to one” proposition and a diamond ring of epic rarity and importance.
It’s easy to get carried away with the possibilities and significance of such an incredibly beautiful and special pair of diamonds. That is, once your mind stops reeling from trying to grasp the rarity of them.
