The Moussaieff Red
The William Goldberg Diamond Corporation, famous for outstanding stones like the

Premier Rose and the Guinea Star, cut this gem from a 13.90-carat rough.

They transformed the piece into a spectacular red diamond weighing 5.11 carats.

The GIA states, "It is the largest Fancy Red, natural color diamond that we have graded as of the date the report was issued." The stone is a triangular brilliant, sometimes refered to as a trillion or a trilliant cut. It was cut sometime in the mid-1990s, so its history is still relatively uneventful. Sometime around 2001 or 2002 the stone was purchased by Moussaieff Jewellers Ltd. The firm, while it has no website as of yet, is renowned for multi-million dollar pieces of jewelry and has locations in the United States as well as abroad.
