Graff pink diamond floral brooch shines

Graff has released a new brooch that pays homage to the house’s history of innovative diamond design: a floral brooch featuring 63 carats of pink and white diamonds. The piece took 240 hours to make, and incorporates 293 round pink diamonds, accented by pear-shape and marquise white diamonds.

No word on price, but with the supply of red and pink diamonds expected to decline 90% next year this piece will likely hold it's value.
