For the week of Valentine’s Day, a resort hotel in Los Cabos, Mexico, is displaying a heart-shaped 10.5-ct. yellow diamond ring that they say is worth $1.5 million. It is on view for its guests and for sale.
Albert Gad, owner of Q Diamonds, bought the diamond in the rough from De Beers. Normally, yellow diamonds are cut in radiant shape, which often shows the most color. However, Gad said the color of the stone was so intense and unique, that he decided to take a risk and make it heart shaped.
The vivid yellow diamond has VS2 clarity and a GIA certificate. Christopher Designs created a one-of-a-kind setting that complements the stone: a ring of platinum and 22K yellow gold with 4.15 cts. of yellow and white diamonds.
