    A PAIR OF IMPORTANT DIAMOND PENDANTS
    Each set with a pear-shaped diamond, weighing approximately 10.21 and 10.51 carats, mounted in platinum
    With reports 10437718 and 10472546 dated 16 October 2009 from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamonds, weighing approximately 10.21 and 10.51 carats, are D color, VVS1 and VVS2 clarity respectively; each accompanied by a working diagram indicating that the clarity may be potentially internally flawless

    Each accompanied by a supplemental letter stating that the diamonds have been determined to by Type IIa diamonds. Type IIa diamonds are the most chemically pure type of diamond and often have exceptional optical transparency. Type IIa diamonds were first identified as originating from India (particularly from the Golconda region) but have since been recovered in all major diamond-producing regions of the world. Among famous gem diamonds, the 530.20 carat Cullinan I and the 105.60 carat Koh-i-noor, are examples of Type IIa
