In its rough state weighing 890 carats, the Incomparable Diamond made a long serendipitous journey before reaching Mouawad. It was in 1980 in the Democratic Republic of Congothat a little girl found the diamond in a rubble pile of kimberlite that was sorted out because it was considered to be too bulky to possess any diamonds. The diamond exchanged hands and was made public in 1984 in its polished form. It was then put on display at several museums with the first one being the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.

“Through creativity, patience and verve, the artisans at Mouawad have crafted animpressive and sublime diamond necklace– giving the famous diamond a permanent throne”, commented Pascal Mouawad, Guardian of the Mouawad Retail Division, who flew to Doha to attend the unveiling event. “Befitting of a royal court, L’Incomparable Diamond Necklace leaves nothing to be desired except to grace the neck of a Queen or a very special woman that absolutely deserves nothing less.”

“This is our fifth year at DJWE and for the third consecutive year we have chosen the show as the location for the global debut of our one-of-a-kind jewellery creations. The unveiling of our L’Incomparable Diamond Necklace is Mouawad’s special gift for the 10th anniversary of what we believe is the top event for the luxury market in the Middle East”, concluded Fred Mouawad, Guardian of the Mouawad Diamond Division.
