A distinctive feature of the store is that it displays rough diamonds.
“To have a beautiful polished diamond, you have to start with a beautiful rough, and this is really where lies our expertise, and we wanted our clients and potential clients to be able to experience what it is to touch and feel a beautiful rough,” Delage said.
To celebrate the opening of the store, De Beers displayed a 109-carat type-IIa rough diamond.
