Diamonds: Jacob & Co.

Diamonds from India’s historic Golconda mines are among the world’s most coveted stones, so it’s clear what makes Jacob & Co.’s 40.05-carat, D-flawless Golconda pendant a true prize. Set together with a 6.76-carat D-flawless stone—also a Golconda—and a dazzling Colombian emerald, the Eye of Golconda pendant’s awe-inspiring centerpiece diamond reflects the extraordinary clarity that the nitrogen-free stones from the age-old mines are known to possess.

  • Among the purest diamonds on Earth, Golconda stones like this pendant’s centerpiece are so clear that they are often described as pools of water.
  • By 1725, the Golconda mines—named for the 14th-century Indian sultanate in which they were located—were fully depleted, but stones with provenances traceable to the quarries are still in high demand.
