The vision of a statement diamond to honor the BC Clark legacy drove us to search the globe for a once-in-a-lifetime discovery. After nearly seven years, we found it. When we did, we instantly KNEW it was to be The Heart of Oklahoma.
Cut from a 38.05-carat rough diamond that was mined off-shore Namibia, Africa, the Heart of Oklahoma was polished to perfection to a very specific carat-weight: 18.92 carats to celebrate BC Clark’s founding year–1892.
Less than one percent of diamonds are Forevermark diamonds. A fraction of those are considered a Forevermark Exceptional. The Heart of Oklahoma is one of them. It is the largest internally-flawless Forevermark Exceptional Diamond ever cut.Experience Exceptional
For a design worthy of this diamond, we partnered with the artisans of Harry Kotlar utilizing their signature old-world techniques and aptitude for relevant aesthetic.
This design is reminiscent of the Industrial revolution steam locomotive's pilot grills with the use of tapered baguette diamonds.

The design house used baguettes and square step cuts diamonds to represent railroad tracks and player piano keys.
This design is an extension of Harry Kotlar's Arabesque collection which fosters the ethereal elegance of a ballerina's poise & balance featuring sweeping wire work encrusted with the daintiest micro pavé diamonds.

This design is an intricate extension of Design 3. It features the amplification and elaboration of the design house's signature sweeping wire work encrusted with dazzling melee diamonds seen in all angles.
