The diamond, Paragon, caught the eyes of many when supermodel Naomi Campbell wore it as part of the ‘Millenium’ diamond necklace. It symbolized the quest and attainment of perfection that the House of Graff strives for. Expert teams from around the world are engaged in cutting and polishing tens of thousands of carats diamonds into unique pieces. That has earned them a name that stands for beauty, excellence, quality, and rarity. Graff has a dazzling variety of trapeze, triangle, trilliant, brilliant, princess, and baguette cut diamonds. Its venture into watches has been blended with the same passion and expertise that goes into the manufacturing of their diamonds. These exquisite timepieces will make any bride desire them.
The House of Graff that has become synonymous with the most brilliant and fabulous jewels was founded in the 1960s by Laurence Graff. Based in London, United Kingdom, the jeweler has worldwide operations ranging from cutting the gemstones to the manufacture and retailing of the finest jewelry across the 26 boutiques.

According to Lawrence Graff, the diamonds excite him and bring life in him. That in turn seems to lend life to the diamonds too! Specializing only in stones of exceptional and the finest quality, the House draws inspiration from the stones themselves! Perfection seems to inspire further perfection.
