Lucara announces agreement with Louis Vuitton, and HB Antwerp for 549-carat white diamond “Sethunya”


Lucara Diamond Corp. said it had reached an agreement with luxury goods house Louis Vuitton and HB Antwerp, a European diamond manufacturing and technology company, for the cutting and polishing of the exceptional, 549-carat white diamond referred to as “Sethunya” meaning “Flower” in Setswana.

Sethunya was recovered unbroken from direct milling of ore sourced from the EM/PK(S) unit of the South Lobe of Lucara’s 100% owned Karowe Mine in February 2020.
