De Beers Introduces Chapter Two of The Alchemist of Light

An astounding collection that continues to reveal the elemental magic of light in various expressions.

After unveiling the first chapter of The Alchemist of Light high jewellery collection in January, De Beers continues to showcase its natural and elemental magic of light through the second chapter.

“The Alchemist of Light High Jewellery collection represents the most creatively and technically ambitious collection we have ever conceived and crafted. It incorporates exceptional diamonds in white and fancy colours, including some specially selected from our Natural Works of Art collection. Our design studio, collaborating with our specialist craftspeople, has created individual pieces that are truly wearable works of art," says Céline Assimon, CEO of De Beers Jewellers.

The new chapter revealed sets of stunning and diverse Dusk Reflection, Ascending Shadows, Midnight Aura, Optical Wonder, and Frozen Capture that interpret light in mesmerizing ways. Comprising a total of 45 one-of-a-kind pieces, the new set is juxtaposed with Atomique, a creative interpretation of diamonds at the molecular level, and Light Rays, which capture the moment sunlight radiates in the morning sky.
