KARL = INSPIRATION!

Karl Lagerfeld was an icon! A creative genius, intensely curious, highly influential, powerful and passionate about style! One of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century and an iconic symbol of style.

This is the man whose love for collars led him to create what could be the most expensive collar in fashion history. The collar features 40 carats of black diamonds and a 22.33-carat emerald centerpiece, all priced at more than $45,000 – with proceeds from the sale reportedly going towards a children’s cancer charity.

The collar was specifically created to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year. A true collector’s item!

Luxurious Art!

Damien Hirst, the well known British contemporary artist, is famous for sensational and often controversial art. One such artwork is the glittering diamond-encrusted skull which has attracted a lot of attention over the years.

He has made headlines again as he has designed a luxurious suite at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and he called it the Empathy Suite.

It is done in the most over-the-top way imaginable with a pair of sharks in a tank, a medicine cabinet called Vegas fully dotted with diamonds, and panels with the artist’s butterfly motifs.

All the artwork make the suite North America’s most expensive suite at a rate of $100,000 per night.

Diamond Girls!

The second generation of the Danelian Diamond Club, the three Danelian sisters, were photographed for the Greek magazine ‘Gala’ and gave a wonderful heartfelt interview.

They proudly say that their father, Christos Danelian, established the Danelian Diamond Club in 1973 and quickly made it one of the market leaders. Barbara, Irene and Myrto are very different personalities but share the love and enthusiasm for the family business each focusing on her expertise. They all had to work hard to prove to their father that they have the necessary interest and skill to take over the business he had built and continue that heritage.

The girls explain that when they were little they used to observe for hours the craftsmen making the fantastic jewelry and they were always amazed by their technique and the level of detail and attention required. It is very important to them that jewelry has a three dimensional value – aesthetic, investment and emotional value.

They recently travelled to London and introduced to their international clientele “Mrs. Carat”, a fictitious persona with a deep love for diamonds and jewelry. It was a very successful interactive presentation of the Danelian Diamond Club jewelry collection and they plan to keep travelling with “Mrs. Carat” to various destinations. Stay tuned!

Thank you “Gala” for such a wonderful interview!

Princess Tatiana is also on the cover of “Gala” magazine wearing our Danelian Diamond Club pear shaped diamond earrings! As always, Princess Tatiana looks amazing!
