Special Gift!

A flawless 88.22 carat diamond fetched approximately $14 million at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Sale of Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite.

Three clients from the region competed for this oval brilliant diamond.

A Japanese private collector ended up buying the stone as a gift to his eldest daughter. He named it the “Manami Star” after his daughter. Special gems for special people! What a great move!

Street Art ♥ Diamonds

Right in the centre of the Diamond District in Antwerp, Belgium Suarez Murals created the very first street art wall. The artist painted a woman’s hand holding a diamond while breaking through the wall. A very powerful image.

The slogan “no pressure, no diamonds” was chosen for a reason … the artist believes diamonds are under extreme pressure and pressure is needed to achieve something so beautiful and precious. The mural looks very impressive!

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.
