NEWS: Special Cut diamond launched by Belgian King Philippe in Seoul
March 2019, IGC Group creates signature 'Golden dew cut'.
IGC Group was selected by the Korean retailer Golden dew, to create the signature special cut, the 'Golden dew cut'. The diamond is set in an exquisite necklace and was presented to the Korean public on March 28th in the presence of the Belgian royal couple at the occasion of the Belgian State Visit to South Korea.
The signature 'Golden dew cut' counts 60 facets and has the shape of a drop (the 'dew shape'). The unique shape and its top brilliancy are a result of the more than 100 years craftmanship of the master designers and polishers at IGC Group, combined with the intensive collaboration with the high-end Korean retailer.
Belgian excellence in diamonds
Five generations of diamond expertise have underpinned the success of one of the world's oldest diamond firms. Jacques Claes, assisted by his father Frans Claes, a diamond cutter, established the company in 1912.
A major milestone in IGC Group’s history was the establishment of a large polishing factory in Thailand in 1980. Since then, two more factories have joined the group: one in Laos in 1999 and another in Botswana in 2007.
Known all over the world for its finest make, IGC Group is a strategic diamond partner for the Swiss watch industry, high-end retailers and jewellery manufacturers worldwide.
