Background: Several unique exhibits from Brazil were a feature of this year's International Jewellery Salon in Dusseldorf at the weekend (21 - 22 October). They included the "Portugueser" Diamond .... the world's largest with emerald-cut facets .... which once belonged to Brazil's Crown Jewels collection. Also on show was a golden football presented to international soccer star Pele, on the occasion of his one-thousandth goal, and a motorised 125-piece floral design incorporating gold, platinum, diamonds and rubies.
