Alrosa has launched a collection of diamonds in celebration of the World Cup named after the countries participating in the tournament.
The collection consists of 32 round diamonds, 0.3 carats each of high quality, ranging from D to F color and VVS2 to IF clarity. The diamonds were mined in Russia and cut by Alrosa’s subdivision – Diamonds Alrosa in keeping with the best traditions of the world-famous Russian cut.
The stones are available to be personalised with an engraving associated with the World Cup, or it can be given its own name. Alrosa will issue a special-design official certificate confirming characteristics of each diamond.
Pavel Vinikhin, director of Diamonds Alrosa said: “Russia produces one-third of all rough diamonds in the world and is famous for its polished diamonds, which are yet another symbol of our country. We decided to provide the fans with the opportunity to take a tiny piece of Russia with them or to mark national teams and symbolic victories important for them not only with football anthems, but also with a unique diamond that will remain with them forever.
“The collections of stones have been selected so that they are affordable for a wide range of fans. Optionally, we can form sets from them.”
