The most famous Asscher-cut diamond of them all was worn by screen legend Elizabeth Taylor. The 33.19-carat Krupp diamond (now more commonly known as the Elizabeth Taylor diamond) was bought for the actress by Richard Burton in 1968 for $ 305,000 USD
On Elizabeth Taylor’s passing, the Krupp Diamond was put up for auction by Christie’s. It sold for an astonishing sum of $8,818,500 to its new owners, South Korea conglomerate The E-Land Group, which owns retail malls, theme parks, restaurants, and other businesses.
The Asscher cut is named after its creator Joseph Asscher who developed it at the start the Art Deco movement in the early 20th century. As owner of the Amsterdam-based Asscher Diamond Company, Joseph was also commissioned by King Edward VII to cut the enormous 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond for the Crown Jewels. The company was later granted a royal title by the Queen of Holland and is today known as The Royal Asscher Diamond Company. —-The Jewellery Editor
THIS IS HOW DIAMONDS ARE MADE.
CLEAVING A DIAMOND
Since diamonds are made of the hardest material in the world, only a diamond can be used to mechanically cut another diamond. Lasers are another alternative but their uses are largely limited to the cleaving and bruting purposes.
CUTTING AND POLISHING A DIAMOND
Usually, the tools used in the workshop consist of diamond-bladed edges or discs that are lined in diamond dust.
The actual process of how diamonds are cut and polished can be broken down into five steps: planning, cleaving, bruting, polishing and inspecting.
Absolutely yes to number 1, 2, 3 and 4. Definitely no to number 5. I am an exotic person, but I just realize I am not that exotic to eat saliva bird coming from a bird nest.
5 of the Most Exotic Foods in the World:
Kobe Beef comes from the best quality cows in the world. Cows fed high quality grass and beer, then they get daily massages to tenderize their meat. 1 kilo of this beef can cost $770 or more.
Densuke Watermelon is crisper on the inside. They are tender and very rare. One watermelon can cost up to $6,100 dollars!
White truffles aren’t called kitchen diamonds for nothing. Their price can fetch from 2,000 to 8,000 euros per kilogram. And which country do they call the Land of Truffles? It’s Serbia alright! Serbia is the real-deal White Truffle Garden of Eden. Just one pound can cost between $1,360 and $4,200 Euros.
Priced at a staggering $600 per pound, this crumbly white cheese is not even available on the commercial market, with its high cost attributed to the considerable time and resources needed for production. While most cheeses are made using cow, goat or sheep milk, this cheese is made from the milk of a Balkan donkey, native only to Serbia and Montenegro, and requires 25 litres of milk to produce just one kilogram of Pule.
BIRDS NEST SOUP
Bird’s Nest Soup is possibly the weirdest and most expensive soup in the world and has been served in China as a delicacy for over 400 years. It is made up of the saliva nests built by birds called cave swifts and is then dissolved in water to create a gelatinous soup. It’s believed that the spit has many nutritional and medicinal uses as one pound of this spit can cost over $4,535.
Waking up on Sunday, have an aromatic Hawaiian coffee, playing a chess game in the computer, then go out for a bike ride, come back to spend the rest of the day with family and friends enjoying delicious fun messy food. This is my kind of a wonderful Sunday 🙂
