Watching the magic of unveiling the Blue Moon Diamond / by michelle mccabe

We spent 3 months filming the transformation of a stone and fell in love. This ugly-ish rock the size of gumball with scuffs and a blue glow and a value of over 50 million dollars, seriously? It was something you wouldn't think twice about kicking down the road. Wait can I touch it. That's where they hook you, those tricky diamonds. 

Every few weeks, we would go and see her. Film her progress and fall deeper into her allure. Every few weeks, we saw her reveal more and more. The process of cutting a diamond is absolutely fascinating and it is always a gift to film and be in the presence of mastery. The physical and energetic dialog the cutter has with the stone is mind blowing.
