This once-in-a-lifetime creation features a historic, 26ct diamond from the fabled Golconda Mines. The story behind this majestic diamond is so extraordinary, that it inspired us to name the necklace after the goddess of good fortune… “Fortuna”.
Musson Jewellers was founded 46 years ago by Robert and Kerry Musson in Sydney, Australia. Musson is one of the enduring jewelry design houses that manufacture their exclusive creations in their state of the art North Shore studio. As a family business, with sons Olivar as creative director and Damien as managing director, the house is moving from strength to strength providing finest and the most exquisite jewels to Australian as well as international clientele. Being one of the most awarded jewelry houses in Australia, Musson Jewellers is also an Argyle Pink Diamonds Select Atelier, having access to beyond rare pink diamonds mined in Argyle mine, Western Australia.
Last year the house acquired a very rare and extraordinary diamond; the famous 26ct old mine diamond that was purchased three decades ago at a car boot sale by a woman residing in West London for as small as 10 pounds as costume jewelry. The owner only realized the value of the ring she was wearing every-day for the past 30 years when someone pointed out that such a large size stone needs to be appraised. The rest is history, over-night she was the fortunate owner of a rare Golconda mine cushion-cut diamond weighing 26.29ct I color VVS2 GIA grade with a special classification of Type IIa.
Now owned by Musson Jewellers, after months of designing and sketching, finality a once in a life-time creation was born. A stellar necklace accompanied by beyond rare, 0.75ct intense, purplish-pink diamond from the Argyle Signature Tender 2009 and over five carats of smaller argyle pink diamonds in a unique design, handcrafted in gold and platinum.
