PUB­LISHER’S NOTE

Adorn - - PUBLISHERS NOTE - Pub­lisher & Editor Ma­neck Davar ma­neck@spen­ta­mul­ti­me­dia.com

For ev­ery 10,000 mined di­a­monds in the world, only one nat­u­ral fancy colour

di­a­mond is pro­duced! Fancy colour di­a­monds score high in unique­ness and

value as com­pared to their colour­less coun­ter­parts. Broadly, th­ese nat­u­ral

chro­matic beau­ties come in a va­ri­ety of colours such as pink, green, yel­low,

blue, brown, grey and black, thus mak­ing them the most prized pos­ses­sions in

the hi­er­ar­chy of the gem world.

Hand­pick­ing rare and beau­ti­ful jew­ellery pieces for our shoots is an art

that ADORN has been per­fect­ing over the years, and our Cover Fea­ture pays

an ode to cou­ture cre­ations con­sti­tuted with sliced and faceted fancy colour

di­a­monds and other pre­cious gem­stones by YS18. The brand was started by

Yo­gen­dra Sethi, a painter and a first-gen­er­a­tion jeweller, who is one of the first

in In­dia to give fancy colour di­a­monds their right­ful due.

Mas­ter­piece Lon­don, an emer­gent art fair that’s soon be­com­ing an in­te­gral

part of Bri­tain’s cul­tural of­fer­ing, brought to­gether some of the world’s finest

jew­ellery de­sign­ers and pur­vey­ors un­der one roof. Much to the de­light of

jew­ellery col­lec­tors and mu­seum di­rec­tors, avant-garde de­signs by mod­ern-day

artists like Suzanne Syz and Francesca Grima sat along­side mu­seum-qual­ity

pieces of im­pec­ca­ble prove­nance, such as a rare gold ring dat­ing back to

the 12th cen­tury, or a pair of pearl ear­rings that be­longed to Eu­ge­nie de

Mon­tijo, the last Em­press of France. View some of th­ese ex­cep­tional works in

Be­yond Com­pare.

We have been given the rare chance of en­ter­ing into Alexan­dra Mor’s

fas­ci­nat­ing world of jew­ellery de­sign in Cre­ative Charisma. Ef­fort­lessly

in­te­grat­ing ge­om­e­try, fem­i­nin­ity and art with in­tense gems in vary­ing cuts,

colour and form, the New York-based artist cre­ates a pic­ture-per­fect

as­sem­blage of jew­ellery that is awe-in­spir­ing.

In Fash­ion For­ward, Jac­que­line Cullen from the United King­dom turns

to Whitby jet, a pop­u­lar gem­stone dur­ing the Vic­to­rian era, to craft her

geo­met­ric mas­ter­pieces speck­led with fis­sures and crevices – a re­flec­tion

of her in­spi­ra­tion.

FOR EV­ERY 10,000 MINED DI­A­MONDS IN THE WORLD, ONLY ONE NAT­U­RAL FANCY COLOUR DI­A­MOND IS PRO­DUCED! FANCY COLOUR DI­A­MONDS SCORE HIGH IN UNIQUE­NESS AND VALUE AS COM­PARED TO THEIR COLOUR­LESS COUN­TER­PARTS.
