Flights of Fancy

In Mother Earth’s hands, co­coons trans­form into but­ter­flies. In Lau­rence Graff ’s hands, rough stones trans­form into the most mag­nif­i­cent works of art

Hong Kong Tatler - - Tatler Focus -

Like a but­ter­fly tak­ing flight as it emerges from its cocoon, Lau­rence Graff has led his jew­ellery com­pany through a beau­ti­ful se­quence of trans­for­ma­tion. From his hum­ble be­gin­nings as a di­a­mond ap­pren­tice, he has be­come the king of di­a­monds; a renowned dia­man­taire who has han­dled more stones of no­table rar­ity than any other jeweller.

Own­ing a piece from the But­ter­fly Col­lec­tion is shar­ing a part of Mr Graff’s life-long pas­sion and spirit. From el­e­gant neck­laces to mag­nif­i­cent time­pieces, ev­ery But­ter­fly piece from GRAFF is a state­ment of the wearer’s so­phis­ti­cated taste, as di­vine as na­ture’s ex­quis­ite trea­sures.

In­spired by the del­i­cate sym­me­try of the wings of the but­ter­fly, GRAFF uses highly sculp­tural ar­range­ments and daz­zling shapes of mar­quise and pear-shape di­a­monds to cre­ate mas­ter­pieces that tran­scend time.

From a range of jew­ellery watches, where each but­ter­fly ap­pears to hover above a layer of in­tri­cately set gem­stones; to ear­rings, neck­laces, pen­dants and rings, all metic­u­lously cre­ated by the mai­son’s mas­ter crafts­men, each piece evokes the move­ment and flu­id­ity of a but­ter­fly in flight.

The bril­liance of di­a­monds cap­tures the essence of th­ese
