Beauty and Purity: The Heart of Eternity

The Heart of Eternity forms part of the eleven rare blue diamonds unveiled by De Beers to commemorate the millennium. A diamond measuring 27.64 carats, or 5.528 grams, The Heart of Eternity was found in the Premier Mine in South Africa. Rated as Fancy Vivid Blue diamond by the Gemological Institute of America, The Heart of Eternity was cut by the Steinmetz group, who owned the diamond before selling it to the De Beers Group. As one of the rarest diamonds in history, the price of The Heart of Eternity is unknown to the public; what is indeed known is that a private collector has it on loan for exhibits.
