Raw beauty of unprocessed diamonds
Diamonds, although they are often synonymous with sophistication, are actually one of the hardest materials in the world - as evidenced by precious pieces of jewelry that were created from untreated stones...
We present you the luxury jewelry pieces that were created by five famous designers, without pre-treatment of this precious material. Each of the five designs can easily remind us of the fact that this hard gem, indeed, is one of the largest and most beautiful wonders that our Earth has to offer.
London designer Sally Agarwal used gentle, unprocessed polki diamonds in her debut collection. Such stones were used in India, where she studied jewelry design for many years. Jewelry from such precious stones could be seen on the courts, but now we can see how good it may seem in the vision of the designer, and her bracelet that costs $ 20,000.
Delicate and flexible, 24-karat gold used by New York designer Gurhan Orhan, presented in the form of luxury jewelry, which can easily be mended, but also damaged during an exclusive design process, is likely to remain forever secret for us. Gurhan studied a thousand years old goldsmith's technique in order to prepare for this challenge, which this beautiful material put him up to. Rough-cut diamonds and pieces of diamonds were the perfect accompaniment for Gurhan naturalistic and delicate designs, such as necklaces that you can see in our gallery.
Drawn by the theme of antiques, Kumi Bhasin grew up in India and presented her childhood with intriguing metal works, which is used as the frame for its chosen rough diamond, among other luminous materials. Its seamless design approach can be seen in the Luminosity creation, which is made of 20-carat gold, in refined art deco style and costs $ 55,000.
New York designer Sanjay Kaslival manually creates luxury jewelry that is truly ornamental and at the same time fully "wearable", which can be concluded on the basis of his Eternity ring, which was created from sterling silver and 14-carat gold, with round and rose diamonds. This design costs $ 4,000.
Todd Reed brought together unusual and beautiful materials in its entire offer of jewelry, on which he began to work before some three decades. His designs with raw diamonds are wonderful, as we can see in the case of bracelet of 18-carat gold, which is a mosaic of different diamonds, which are intriguing perfectly arranged on the surface. Price of the bracelet is $ 8,800.
