People often debate whether the phrase “Bigger is Better” is really accurate or fits their lives. America itself owns a reputation of going “bigger”, as well as the state of Texas; from bigger homes to bigger cars, bigger flatscreen TV and even bigger bank accounts. But does “bigger” always mean “better”? Well in the case of the world’s largest rough diamond, I guess it does.
Below is an interesting article from InStore Magazine that reveals how British billionaire and diamantaire Laurence Graff paid $53 million for the 1,109-carat Lesedi La Rona, the largest gem-quality rough diamond discovered in more than a century. Graff’s purchase marks the poignant reunion of two of the world’s largest and most high-profile diamonds. In this engaging article by Howard Cohen, he states that maybe “It wasn’t ‘too big to sell’ after all”. We are Stuart Benjamin & Co.
