The end­less prose on fine jew­ellery never seems to fully cap­ture its power to fas­ci­nate and be­guile. Sotheby’s Di­a­monds cel­e­brates the cre­ations that have en­snared gen­er­a­tions of men and women, artists and muses, de­sign­ers and crafts­men at their new Lon­don Sa­lon. At Sotheby’s Di­a­monds, the jewel it­self is the muse, theme and in­spi­ra­tion. Each jewel starts with the stone, each con­cept and de­sign re­volves around a par­tic­u­lar di­a­mond, which be­comes its cen­tral theme, its hero and shin­ing light. The di­a­monds at Sotheby’s de­mand the ded­i­ca­tion and pa­tience of a me­dieval minia­tur­ist and the finest of brush strokes. Each piece is prized as art­works in their own right. Seen here is the in­tense colour and shim­mer­ing light of the Grand Bleu, epit­o­mis­ing el­e­gance and sen­su­al­ity. A sou­venir of end­less days spent drenched in the sun and balmy sum­mer nights, this sul­try 3.91-carat fancy deep brown­ish or­angey yel­low cush­ion cut di­a­mond is en­closed in a lush bor­der of siz­zling orange pink sap­phires and gar­nets. At 34–35 New Bond Street, Lon­don, W1A 2AA
