Introducing, The Heart of Oklahoma Diamond

The largest internally-flawless Forevermark Exceptional Diamond ever cut.

We are thrilled to finally unveil The Heart of Oklahoma Diamond.

 

 

The Heart of Oklahoma is an 18.92 carat, extremely rare diamond graded internally flawless, fancy intense yellow. But it means so much more to us at BC Clark.

Over seven years ago, Coleman and Mitchell Clark set out to find a diamond worthy of honoring the BC Clark legacy and the state that has done so much for this 127-year-old family business. After searching the globe, the Clarks finally discovered this once-in-a-lifetime diamond.

Cut from a 38.05-carat rough diamond that was mined off-shore Namibia, Africa, it was polished to perfection to a very specific carat-weight: 18.92 carats to celebrate our founding year–1892.

We have been in the diamond business for 127 years. It was very important to us to find a diamond that would not only celebrate our company’s longevity and history but also the people of Oklahoma. This diamond’s color is as intense as an Oklahoma sunset and as faceted and spirited as our people.

When we saw it, we simply knew, this is The Heart of Oklahoma.

After being cut and polished in New York City, an excessive certification process followed. Eventually, it was designated as a Forevermark Exceptional Diamond and is the largest internally-flawless Forevermark Exceptional Diamond ever cut, according to Forevermark, a De Beers company.

Less than one percent of all diamonds are eligible to be Forevermark diamonds. Only a fraction of these is considered for the Forevermark Exceptional Diamonds Collection, as each Exceptional Diamond must adhere to strict standards of quality and ethics, and exceed a certain carat-weight.

The Heart of Oklahoma has a sister diamond. The Sol Diamond is a 5.01-carat Forevermark Exceptional Diamond cut from the same rough diamond.

The diamonds were revealed to the public today at our downtown store. People may view the diamond, tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 14 from noon to 5 p.m. at BC Clark’s Northpark Mall location.

Harry Kotlar has been commissioned to craft both diamonds into custom-designed rings.

We chose to partner with the Harry Kotlar company because, like us, they are a legacy company and understand that this is more than a diamond to us. They are also one of the most highly-regarded artisans in the industry, combining relevant design with old-world craftsmanship.

We are proud and excited we were were able to bring this once-in-a-lifetime discovery to the people of Oklahoma, and share a diamond worthy of being called The Heart of Oklahoma with you, our customers and friends.

Exciting News: BC Clark to Open New Store in Classen Curve Summer 2020

We are really excited to announce that our Penn Square store will be relocating to Classen Curve Summer of 2020! Here is the official press release to give you more information:

BC Clark, Oklahoma’s oldest and most prominent jeweler, plans to open Oklahoma’s largest and most prestigious jewelry store at Classen Curve in 2020.

 

The company’s current Penn Square Mall location, including the staff, will relocate to the fully remodeled new location at Classen Curve in summer 2020.

 

“Classen Curve has become Oklahoma City’s premier shopping destination, and we look forward to joining the fantastic retailers there,” said BC Clark President Coleman Clark. “When the new store opens, our customers will experience a dynamic and inviting environment, see a wider selection in every department and find convenient parking just steps from our door.”

 

The store will occupy the space previously held by Balliets, and an extensive renovation will bring in even more natural light and a fresh, new look. The showroom will grow by over 30%, including expanded Rolex, David Yurman, engagement ring and Life:Style departments.

 

“The retail landscape is evolving. Shopping habits and consumer expectations are changing. We are in tune with our customers and will provide an approachable, comfortable and luxurious store experience,” Clark said. “The new store demonstrates our family’s commitment to Oklahoma City for years to come and solidifies BC Clark’s position as Oklahoma’s leading jewelry retailer.”

 

The existing Penn Square store will remain fully staffed through the coming holiday season and the first half of 2020.

 

Shannon Barghols, marketing director at Classen Curve, welcomed her new tenants.

 

“Classen Curve already has the best shopping and dining in Oklahoma for every occasion,” she said. “Adding a legendary local brand gives customers one more reason to shop in the heart of the city.”

Transform your 9-5 Look

Did you know the easiest way to transform your look from workday to date night is the right accessories? If you are a Facets blog regular you probably have heard this before but that is because it is so true.

With just a few simple changes you can turn your 9-5 look into a stylish night out on the town look. By making a few adjustments like trading simple pieces for statement pieces, gold for silver, elegant for playful, you can easily change up your look without changing your clothes.

We also love the idea of adding a little color. Some of our favorite designers for color are Ippolita, Marco Bicego, and David Yurman.  If you don’t want to go brighter, how about going bolder?
