Marlène Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Marylin Monroe, Princess Grace Kelly, Eva Gardner, Betty Davis all turned into diamonds by artist Vik Muniz.

vik-test-

Vik Muniz is a Brazilian avant garde spirit, artist, photographer, sculptor based in New York.
One of his famous works is the Diamond Divas series.
He used more then 3,000 loose diamonds, an estimate of 550 carats.
‘I love the way the diamonds play with the light’ was his first insight. A thing we know too well.
Buyers were interested while the pieces were still in the making,
‘because they are fascinated by diamonds.’

Vik Muniz’s ‘Monica Vitti’, 2004 (pictured above), will be auctioned at Sotheby’s on the 7th of March 2014 in New York. Lot 221, estimated price 60,000USD – 80,000USD.

to inspire even more confidence… We style it up with our unique Danelian neck piece.

Famous Blue Moon, an exceptionally rare gem was sold last Wednesday for 48$ million to  a business man in HongKong named Joseph Lau who bought it for his 7 yr old daughter. Joseph Lau was the top bidder for the 12.03-carat “Blue Moon” diamond for a record-setting 48.6 million Swiss francs. He promptly renamed the gem “The Blue Moon of Josephine”
Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 9.13.47 AM

Lau was also the buyer of a 16.08-carat vivid pink diamond that sold for 28.7 million Swiss francs ($28.5 million) auctioned by Christie’s the night before, she said. The buyer renamed that diamond “Sweet Josephine,” Christie’s said.

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 9.15.12 AM

The blue diamond, set in a ring, is among the largest known fancy vivid blue diamonds.
The Blue Moon — named in reference to its rarity,”once in a blue moon” — topped the previous record of $46.2 million set five years ago by the Graff Pink. The diamond also set a new record of more than $4 million per carat.

diamond portal art

reena ahluwaliaThe Diamond Portal Series

 ”Diamonds and emotions go together”

..that is something you would hear from Indian Canadian based jewelry designer
Reena Ahluwalia. And we totally agree with her.

“I am intrigued by the ability of a diamond to hold you captivated -
through its fire, brilliance, reflections, colour and its association as a holder of value,
prestige, power and mystique.
The eternal depth of diamonds are like portals, gateways to other dimensions.
In the Diamond Portal Series, I explore the moments of human emotions
as seen through the lens of the diamond as a storyteller.

Reena was immersed into her deeply-rooted tradition of Indian jewelry.
Researching the importance of jewelry’s many functions,
whether symbolic, physical or conceptual, she also started painting them.

The history of the engagement ring!

Have you ever thought of how the tradition of the engagement ring ever started?

One of the first recorded uses of a diamond engagement ring was Archduke Maximilian of Austria’s proposal to Mary of Burgundy, heiress to a vast empire in 1467, with a ring set with thin, flat pieces of diamonds in the shape of an “M.” Mary, among the many suitors for her hand, selected Archduke Maximilian of Austria, who became her co-ruler. The marriage took place at Ghent on the evening of 16 August 1477.

But we can trace this mark-your-territory wedding trend way, way back, eons before Max and his fair Lady M. Our love affair with the rock has slowly evolved starting the age of cavemen! When they tied cords made of braided grass around his chosen mate’s wrists, ankles, and waist, to bring her spirit under his control.
Egyptians, in 2800 BC are buried wearing rings made of a single gold wire on the third finger of their left hands, believed to be connected directly to the heart by the vena amoris. During 1st Century BC, puzzle rings first appear in Asia used by sultans and sheiks for their wives. In the year 1217, the bishop of Salisbury puts an end to the popular practice of seducing girls into mock marriage with rings made of rushes. His solution? Declaring a marriage with a rush-ring legally binding!!

During the 1800s the highly sentimental Victorians use gemstones to spell out names or endearments, such as a D-E-A-R-E-S-T ring set with a sequence of diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald and other precious stones. Until 1867, where diamonds are discovered in the Cape Colony, South Africa followed by the arrival of Cecil Rhodes in 1873 who founded the DeBeers Mining Company.
