1_ DE BEERS Awak­en­ing Lo­tus Neck­lace

In­spired by the serene beauty of the lo­tus flower, the Lo­tus high jew­ellery col­lec­tion by De Beers brings the flower to life by art­fully and skil­fully bal­anc­ing pol­ished di­a­monds with rough stones. The use of rough di­a­monds is a De Beers sig­na­ture; the Awak­en­ing Lo­tus draws the eye along the rip­pling lines of round- and mar­quise-cut di­a­monds to the mag­nif­i­cent 18.79-carat rough blue-green macle drop pen­dant.

2_ CHOPARD Gar­den of Kala­hari Neck­lace

The Queen of Kala­hari di­a­mond is a 342-carat, D-colour rough, of flaw­less clar­ity grade, that was dis­cov­ered in the Karowe mine in Botswana. From this mas­sive stone, 23 di­a­monds were cut, of which five – a cush­ion, a bril­liant, a heart, an emer­ald and a pear – are more than 20 carats each and form the pièce de ré­sis­tance. The neck­lace can also be worn as a choker, with the heart-shaped and pear-shaped di­a­monds de­tach­able to form ear­rings.

3_ GRAFF Pink Di­a­mond Ring

Graff has ded­i­cated more than half a cen­tury to craft­ing the most ex­quis­ite of di­a­monds; founder Lau­rence Graff is known the world over for his ex­per­tise and his love of coloured di­a­monds. The Graff Pink, a rare 24.78-carat fancy in­tense pink di­a­mond, was pur­chased by the jew­eller in 2010; the ring pic­tured above fea­tures a 16.88-carat emer­ald-cut pink di­a­mond, flanked by two smaller white di­a­monds.

4_ DE GRISO­GONO The Art of de Griso­gono Neck­lace

Dis­cov­ered from a 404-carat rough, the 163.41-carat, D-colour flaw­less di­a­mond at the heart of the Art of de Griso­gono is a one-of-a-kind high jew­ellery neck­lace that also holds the ti­tle of be­ing the largest di­a­mond of its kind to ever come to auction; de Griso­gono part­nered with Christie’s to high­light the most ex­quis­ite of its jew­ellery cre­ations. The neck­lace also fea­tures a rich as­sort­ment of di­a­monds and emer­alds.
