CARAT+ to Support Graff's FACET

Antwerp: CARAT+, the new trade show dedicated to the diamond, diamond jewellery and associated services, is delighted to support the Graff charitable foundation, FACET, through the purchase of multiple copies of the Graff coffee table book. The book titled ‘GRAFF’ will be presented as a gift to VIP guests visiting the show.

The magnificently designed 272 page book recounts the history of the famed diamond manufacturer and retailer, which over the years has cut and sold several of the world’s largest and most celebrated gem diamonds, such as the 603-carat Lesotho Promise; the 118.08 carat Delaire Sunrise, the largest square Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond in the world; and the 102.79 carat Graff Constellation, the largest D Flawless round diamond ever produced. All proceeds from the book are earmarked for the FACET Foundation.

Founded by Laurence Graff in 2008, FACET works with charities in Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa’s Cape Winelands to provide education and training to children and communities in order to help them achieve their full potential.

“CARAT+ is committed to the principle that the diamond and jewellery industry must be seen as an Interdependent community stretching from the mines all the way through to the jewellery retailers. The health of the entire system is reliant on the wellbeing of all participants and stakeholders along the entire chain of distribution.” said Filip Van Laere, CARAT+ Event Director.

CARAT+ is a trade show tailored specifically for professional buyers of diamonds and diamond jewellery. Covering the full spectrum of the diamond and diamond jewellery trades, it will feature four sectors, namely loose diamonds, branded diamond jewellery, non-branded diamond jewellery, and services for the diamond and diamond jewellery industry. Taking place in Antwerp Expo, entry to the show be restricted exclusively to industry professionals, including diamond and jewellery wholesalers and manufacturers from around the world, and jewellery retailers predominantly from Europe.
