For over 125 years, De Beers has travelled with diamonds on their journey from deep within the earth, acting as companion, protector and curator. This unparalleled access to diamonds at their source means that the origins of De Beers are mapped on the discovery of rare inimitable diamonds. These famous diamonds each have their own story to tell.
THE MILLENNIUM STAR
At 203.04 carats, The Millennium Star is the second largest known top colour, internally and externally flawless diamond pear-shaped diamond. It took over three years to cut the diamond in to its classic pear form. Cut for exceptional beauty and not simply for weight, this incredible diamond epitomises our approach to diamond jewellery.
