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.
Ice and diamonds.
For the first time, the set features rock crystals from Brazil, each piece cut solely for this project and even used as a diamond setting. The six stunning pieces shared purity and beauty sparkle with artistic brilliance and diamond expertise. In pristine perfection, the impressive necklace with round brilliant diamonds interspace squares of crystal mounted on polished gold to give a translucent effect.
These transition into a fringe of marquise-shaped diamonds, finishing in an astounding 20.10-carat pear-shaped flawless diamond. The ear cuff and stud make a modern statement with crystal squares from which white marquise-shaped diamonds delicately drop. The chandelier earrings follow the same design cue as the necklace highlighting its layering aesthetic while dancing with light. The two rings: one features an internally flawless oval-shaped 8.24-carat diamond, the other, a 10.31-carat round brilliant. The round ring is bombé cut from one single piece of crystal, engraved with squares to mirror the aesthetic codes of the gleaming icy theme.
