Q

Who cut the Taylor-Burton diamond?

A

Hi Christine,

The Taylor-Burton Diamond was cut from a 240.80ct piece of rough found in the premier in 1966. It was purchased by Harry Winston. Harrys Cleaver (cutter) Pastor Colon Jr studied the rough for 1/2 year before he decided exactly how to cleave the stone.

Have a great day!
