Diamonds are girl’s best friends. It is a historical statement that is still true. Some exceptional women deserve exceptional diamonds. Here is a very interesting project by WORLD OF DIAMONDS who just launched the Jane Seymour Blue Diamond ring: a homage to the great woman, actress and philanthropist.
To celebrate Seymour‟s accomplishments in the film industry, WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group crafted a 2.08 carat Fancy Vivid Blue diamond ring in platinum, and plated with rose gold. The masterpiece, named The Jane Seymour, was created for the diamond behemoth‟s private collection. Based on recent records from auction powerhouses, Sotheby’s lists a 2.11 carat fancy intense blue diamond ring that fetched USD 1,899,322 in October 2015, and according to Christie’s, a 1.74 carat fancy intense blue diamond ring fetched USD 1,925,000 in December 2015. The industry recognizes fancy vivid blue diamonds as being rarer and therefore more valuable than their fancy intense counterparts. The Jane Seymour could easily fetch in excess of USD 2,000,000, however, the creation is priceless after accounting for its celebrity recognition. The Diamond has a Cushion cut that is supposed to reveal all the beauty of the precious stone. This unique shape has been popular for more than a century. Cushion-cut diamonds (also known as “pillow-cut” diamonds) have rounded corners and larger facets to increase their brilliance. These larger facets highlight the diamond’s clarity, so if you choose an SI clarity grade, be sure to review the clarity plot on the diamond certificate. Cushion-cut diamonds are available in shapes ranging from square to rectangular.
Having starred as Bond girl in Live and Let Die, as Queen Marie-Antoinette in La Révolution française, and an appearance in Young Winston as Winston Churchill’s lover, to name a few, Seymour has clinched an Emmy Award, two Golden Globe Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. An impossibly rare diamond has been meticulously selected to illustrate the pride of eternity over matter, emotion and knowledge. The Jane Seymour blue diamond boasts a VS1 clarity grade, a highly desirable one in the world of diamonds, literally. Seymour was so fascinated by the honor herself that she couldn’t resist snapping ‘selfies’ when presented to wear The Jane Seymour. It comes as a pleasant surprise to all of Seymour‟s fans that during an interview with Singapore’s Channel NewsAsia, the celebrity acknowledged that The Jane Seymour was “matching and doing very well” with her Open Hearts bracelet. The Open Hearts jewelry collection signifying “love has no boundaries and flows unconditionally”, was designed by Seymour, and which The Jane Seymour celebrity blue diamond ring can ultimately complement. If you deserve to purchase this masterpiece however, WOD Group has an undisclosed selection criteria which the eventual owner of the ring has to fulfill. Apparently, money can’t buy everything.
In the photo above we can see Jane Seymour with Karan Tilani, Director of World of Diamonds Group. Having launched and sold the world‟s most expensive perfume collection in Singapore in 2015, the WOD Group has always been behind some of the finest diamonds and jewelry pieces. Through joint ventures with maisons in Europe and the Americas, the Russian conglomerate is almost fully integrated in diamond mining, polishing, high jewelry creation and distribution to leading houses of the world. As one of the largest privately held diamond mining corporations, the WORLD OF DIAMONDS has directly catered to billionaires and members of royal descent.
“ The invitation to behold this creation would rather you not compare The Jane Seymour to anything else in the high jewelry world. It is a celebratory treat, more comparable to a mega-yacht or a ticket to the moon.” – Karan Tilani, Director, World Of Diamonds Group
Reflecting the power celebrity who has clinched an Emmy Award, two Golden Globe Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, dwell into the untamed desires of the mind and soul to expand all perceptions into an atmosphere of true significance. A deep blue exudes infinite fondness through a hypnotic magnetism, which The Jane Seymour embodies to the highest degree. In its rough state, The Jane Seymour was hardly symmetrical in structure, which meant that with one miscalculation, one slip, and its color would have disappeared entirely. Retaining techniques passed down from generations, among the world’s finest artisans spent almost a year deliberating, planning and painstakingly cutting the rough into a magnificent cushion-cut 2.08 carat diamond of perfect proportions.
Blue Diamonds, precious and rare
According to “The Fancy Color Diamond Book” by Eden Rachminov, less than one-tenth of a percent of all fancy colored diamonds are Type IIb blues. Moreover, the Natural Color Diamond Association reported that only one natural blue diamond can be found on the market for every 100 Picasso paintings up at auction. There is more to these gems than meets the eye, though. An unusual chemical makeup and rich role in history make blue diamonds some of the most fascinating stones in existence. While a diamond is forming, boron particlescan become trapped inside the crystal lattice. It is this substance that absorbs yellow light, thus reflecting a blue color. Like any other colored diamond, blue stones can exhibit a wide range of hues, from pale shades that mimic a clear sky, to steel blue, to an intense deep sea. It’s common to see blue diamonds listed with more specific names regarding their shade, such as baby, royal, navy or midnight.
Due to the diminishing supply and increasing demand for blue diamonds, it goes without saying that they don’t come at a low cost. The NCDIA recently reported that prices for natural blue diamonds has been gradually and consistently rising between 12 and 17 percent every year over the past decade, regardless of the saturation level. A fact that we can easily suport based on personal experience. So while fancy vivid blue diamonds may be less commonly found and more highly sought-after, even fancy light blue diamonds are being sold for jaw-dropping prices.
