Louis Vuitton's interest in the high-end jewellery market is proven after this major purchase...

Introducing Sewelo – the palm-sized diamond rock that Louis Vuitton just acquired.

Considered to be the world’s second-largest diamond, the 1,758 touch diamond was first recovered by Lucara Diamond Corp in Botswana in April 2019.

The name, Sewelo, originates from the southern African Tswana language and translates to “rare find”.

In a move that furthers the French maison’s commitment to strengthening its high-end jewellery portfolio, Louis Vuitton, together with Lucara, have yet to put a price on the stunning piece.
