Takat to Unveil 44-Carat ‘Divinity Emerald’

divinityemerald(Press Release) NEW YORK — Takat is unveiling a 44-carat emerald at the JCK Luxury show in Las Vegas this year.

The gemstone consists of fine quality Colombian material from the Muzo mine. It has a rich and even color and only minor oil — an already rare combination.

With a perfect emerald cut and a big face-up appearance, the stone would command attention based on its quality alone. 

Christopher Smith, president of the American Gemological Laboratories, said: “This remarkable gemstone possesses a cut and finish that instills an overall charm that is difficult to quantify, yet accentuates its appeal and exclusivity. Such a combination of quality factors, large size, absence of treatment, and origin determination, as present in this exceptional Colombian emerald is very rare.”

Takat acquired the stone directly from the manufacturer and in the process of refining the stone to improve the life and symmetry made an extraordinary discovery about one of its inclusions. Inclusions in emeralds are typically formed in fissures and veils creating a garden-like appearance. This stone, however, has a distinctive black inclusion in the center of the stone that is a precise representation of the Arabic symbol for Allah. It is this “mark of God” that inspired the name of the stone: “The Divinity Emerald.” So extraordinary is this inclusion that GIA has seen fit to do its own independent write-up on the piece, to be released in June.

Takat CEO Rayaz Takat said: “To have such a classic Arabic symbol of the Muslim faith that expresses God in the Arabic language, the creator of the universe and the judge of humankind, is a once-in-a-lifetime find. While Takat has handled some of the finest gemstones on Earth, this particular stone inspires special reverence.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
