    Do you know that Tanzanites are 1000 times rarer than diamonds?
    It is estimated that less than 1% of Tanzanite mined qualify for the ‘exceptional’ colour rating, and this 118-carat Tanzanite is certified to possess a rating of ‘exceptional +’.

  • Visitors will get to see the rare 107-carat astonishing, fancy coloured diamond at DeGem. The soft cushion shape of this magnificent jewel is enhanced by its rich, champagne colour that sparkles brilliantly as the diamond turns.
    This is the largest diamond found in South East Asia till date

    Champagne coloured diamonds are also known as celebration diamonds, frequently bought or gifted to commemorate special milestones or occasions with loved ones.
