“Jubilee Diamond has been doing business with Antwerp in Belgium, which is known to be the global centre of jewellery manufacturing and trading, for more than 90 years,” Unvarat Pornprakit, an executive with Jubilee Diamond, said.
Present at the event were Baron Christophe de Borrekens, a member of the Belgian royal family and inventor of the 90-cushion diamond, and Belgian Ambassador to Thailand Philipp Kridelka.
Jubilee worked with the world’s best lapidary to create the first “Centennial Jubilee 90 Facets” diamond, giving Thai diamond enthusiasts a chance to admire a diamond that is 60-per-cent brighter. Normally, diamonds feature around 58 to 66 facets.
Jubilee Diamond also showcased some remarkable jewellery at the event.
Grabbing most of the attention was the “Excellence of 19”, a set made with 0.19-karat diamonds that has been certified by HRD Antwerp – the first set with diamonds of less than 0.30 karats to receive such a certificate.
Also on show were the “Eventail” set and the “Pink Majesty” collection set with rare pink diamonds. Pink diamonds are considered the rarest because it is created in abnormally high temperatures and pressure from all sides. Jubilee said each pink diamond was carefully selected to create this special handmade collection, with there being just one piece per design. Similarly, the “Yellow Mystery” collection also has one piece per design on offer.
The lovers of Carat diamonds also had the chance to sigh over the Carat Collection, comprising specially selected round, fancy shaped diamonds that are 1-karat in size and 100D colour.
Also on display were sets worn by celebrities from British diamond brand “Forevermark”.
