Tresor Paris has selected six white diamonds to be placed inside a set of hand-crafted crackers on sale for £995,000 through luxury launches website VeryFirstTo.com.
The six diamonds chosen by Tresor Paris were selected for their distinctive different cuts.
The diamond Christmas crackers hold the following stones:
3.00ct, oval, E-VS1
3.00ct, princess, F-VS1
3.50ct, step-cut, F-VS1
2.50ct, round, E-VS2
4.00ct, marquise, D-VS2
3.00ct, pear, D-VVS2 type IIA
The cost of the crackers includes each diamond being set by Tresor Paris in a classic designed item of jewellery. More elaborate settings will incur an extra charge.
The crackers have been designed and hand-made by the long established House of Crackers who especially selected exotic paper sourced from India, super sheer ribbon from Cheshire, poinsettia flowers, and goose feathers for these extremely elegant creations.
Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, Superbrands and Cool BrandLeaders, says: “Guests at one dinner this Christmas will be flabbergasted to find no joke, no hat, and no plastic whistle in their crackers, just a truly magnificent diamond. The luckiest going home with a 3 carat pear diamond valued at £247,000, and the ‘loser’ having to make do with a glorious 3 carat oval worth £113,000!”
Salim Hasbani, director of Tresor Paris, comments: “We have managed to source a truly exceptional collection of cuts. From the oval, princess and step cut, to the round, pear and marquise: the recipients will be thrilled with the brilliance and clarity in each. And we’ll set each in a beautifully designed piece of jewellery.”
Should the diamond Christmas crackers be purchased a donation of £1000 will be made to The Prince’s Trust charity.
