Since being founded by Laurence Graff OBE in 1960, Graff has carved out a reputation as a global leader in the sourcing and crafting of rare diamonds and gemstones, known for its exquisite jewellery pieces, which are designed and manufactured in its London atelier. Last year the jeweller claimed to have purchased the world’s largest uncut diamond, a 1,109-carat gem, for $53 million.
