Rojtman diamond. A large 107.60-carat yellow cushion-cut diamond purchased by Harry Winston, New York City gem merchant, in 1957. It was recut to 107.46 carats, and mounted in an elaborate clip-pendant combination, and sold in the United States in 1963. The Rojtman diamond was exhibited at the De Beers diamond Pavilion in Johannesburg in 1966 by its owner, Mrs. Marc Rojtman. Prior to the ac­quisition of the Rojtman diamond, by the late Marc Rojtman, nothing is known of its history. Some experts believe that it is similar to the Star of Diamonds, a high-quality South Afri­can stone found in the early days of the diamond fields.
