Orofasma, Greek jewellery manufacturer and wholesaler, unveiled its Eternal Love Diamond collection at the recent JCK Luxury show. Featuring round-cut natural diamonds in an innovative setting that allows the central diamond to twirl around its axis, the technique has been patented with a Utility Model Certificate under the name of its creator Kevork Kolanian, who had been experimenting with novel ways of diamond setting nearly six years ago. It took some months to perfect the technique, says Kevork. The patented Orofasma Setting – or O.S. as the brand calls it – is more of a technique than a mechanism.
“It is quite simple in its conception but difficult in its making. In fact, there is only one prong-like metal ‘arm,’ sweeping around the diamond and fixing it on each piece of jewellery. It is a handmade technique, whereby each central diamond is meticulously mounted such that it is free to spin around its axis,” explains Kevork. The Eternal Love Diamond, with the signature setting, has over 160 pieces of rings, bangles, bracelets, pendants and earrings – all set in 18-karat gold.
