The Red Wonder Cross

The Red Wonder Cross was designed by Oren Seren, Master Diamond Cutter of Seren Diamonds, and features 11 fancy red diamonds (0.42-0.93 carats), as well as colorless and blue diamonds, set in white gold.

The 11 red diamonds in the Red Wonder Cross were all cut and polished by Seren. The cross was completed on December 18, 2008. Red diamonds are so rare that GIA records show that over a 30 year period from 1957 to 1987 there was no mention of a GIA lab report issued for a diamond with “red” as the only descriptive term. Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine in Western Australia, which was estimated to produce 90 per cent of the world’s supply of gem-quality pink and red diamonds, closed at the end of 2020.
