Famous Diamonds Copied
Known for their carat, cut, color and clarity famous diamonds of the world are something most will never see.
Unless they know Loveland’s Chuck Wilson.
For 14 years, Wilson has been working to replicate 29 of the world’s most famous diamonds, including the Hope Diamond and the Star of the South.
"Everybody can’t do it, it’s something that takes a little skill and patience mostly patience. It takes a long time," said Wilson.
Wilson begins with a simple diagram and a metal stick superglued to a chunk of cubic zirconia.
"Then I’ll take my band saw, and cut it cut the excess off so that I don’t have to grind so much," Wilson said.
