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.
Green clouds of stardust are the inspiration for the Midnight Aura set with its five inventive pieces. Peerless white round brilliant and princess-cut diamonds innovatively set within cabochon-cut green chrysoprase from Africa. Precisely and delicately articulated, the magical necklace with hundreds of bezel-set diamonds creates a flexible mesh featuring an extraordinary 20.57-carat pear-shaped white diamond.
Inspired by continuity and connection, both rings are built respectively with two chrysoprase cabochons flanking a 0.7-carat princess-cut white diamond and a 4.23-carat pear-shaped white diamond opposite a princess-cut diamond inlaid into chrysoprase. The theme of cosmic orbiting is also brought to life in the climber earrings, with a multiplicity of diamond cuts and settings that reflect the mystical cosmos.
