Following the launch of its Alchemist of Light fine jewelry collection in January, De Beers Jewelers has unveiled a second collection of 29 pieces of unique creations (bringing the total number of Alchemist jewels to 45). The collection is meant to tell a story of the morning sunrise through diamonds (and lots of them) and vibrant shades of enamel.
“The Alchemist of Light High Jewelry collection represents the most creative and technically ambitious collection we have ever designed and manufactured,” De Beers Jewelers CEO Celine Assimon said in a statement. “It incorporates exceptional diamonds in white and fancy colors, including some specially selected from our Natural Works of Art collection. Our design studio, in collaboration with our specialist craftsmen, has created individual pieces that are truly wearable works of art.
The collection includes five different sets: Dusk Reflections, Ascending Shadows, Midnight Aura, Optional Wonder and Frozen Capture. “There are so many elements that push the boundaries. The Dusk Reflection set not only has detachable elements, but the beautiful choker also converts into two cuffs, a masterpiece of craftsmanship and technical execution. The Ascending Shadows and Optical Wonder sets use titanium and aluminum colored in striking pink and blue tones for a sublime sculptural effect, showcasing fancy colored and white diamonds. Midnight Aura, evoking cosmic stardust, sets diamonds in the chrysoprase of green gemstones, while Frozen Capture layers diamonds juxtaposed with rock crystal patterns. Each piece is as exquisite as it is extraordinary.
Coin pricing ranges from $50,000 to $190,000 and is available upon request.
