This Ring Is Carved Straight Out Of A Diamond — 150 Carats’ Worth

By David Ponce

The above is not a gadget, not exactly new, but it is all kinds of amazing. It’s the creation of Mohamed Shawesh, President and CEO of Shawish Jewelry. It could be called “the world’s first diamond ring” and it wouldn’t be a lie. very other “diamond ring” out there is really a “ring of gold, studded with diamonds.” This on the other hand, well is a ring that’s been carved entirely from a giant diamond. Using lasers and traditional diamond cutting and polishing techniques, the ring weighs in at an impressive 150 carats. A year went into its making and its design is copyrighted, much like the shape of the Coke bottle is. It’s expected to sell for $70 million, though it was recently on display at Baselworld, leading us to believe that it has found no buyer. Yet.

     Honestly, it might be cheaper to surgically re-size your finger.

    Diamonds have a perfect cleavage.  You wouldn’t want to bump your hand on the table too hard or its back to the drawing board or shall I say the facet table.

    Who would wear the gosh awful thing?  Yeah it is pretty, but as a ring, not so much!  I would rather have a nice tastefully done 3 karat ring.  LOL!

    The article is somewhat misleading. It’s not a wedding ring.
     Rather, my unconfirmed sources tell me, it was ordered and custom fit for Jamie Dimon’s winkle…but he got really picky and weaseled out of the deal at the last minute.  Luckily, J.D.’s willy, hard, is pretty much the diameter of the average woman’s ring finger, so…
