a diamond beach, the gem

A beach? Full of diamonds?
The beauty of nature cannot be compared to anything in the world.
We felt inspired by The Diamond Beach in Iceland.

A beach surrounded by ice stones shaped like diamonds, shining on the shore.

 Inspiration comes from around the world!
And it reminds us of this 1109 uncut diamond sold at Sotheby’s back in 2016.

hermitage russian jewels

The loveliest jewelry collection of the Russian court in Amsterdam’s
amazing Hermitage Museum is soon coming to an end and we just felt inspired..

Russian court culture knew no counterpart anywhere in the world. A french ambassador once wrote: ‘Thanks to the brilliance of the uniforms, superb toilettes, magnificent furnishings the spectacle was such as no court in the world can rival. I shall long remember the dazzling display of jewels on the women’s shoulders. It was simply a fantastic shower of diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, topaz, a blaze of fire and flame.’

An imperial collaction of 200 years of jewels where Catherine’s The Great ceremonial bed chamber was transformed into the Diamond Room, which could ‘be seen as the richest of cabinets of precious objects’. A showroom with an explosion of jewellery and other prestigious objects. Like an amazing jewelry box laid with nearly 400 gems including rubies, sapphires and amethysts.
