De Beers Debuts 2nd Iteration Of High Jewelry Collection


Following the debut of its Alchemist of Light high jewelry collection in January, De Beers Jewelers has unveiled a second, 29-piece collection of one-of-a-kind designs (bringing the total number of Alchemist jewels to 45). The collection is meant to tell a story of the morning sunrise through diamonds (and a lot of them), and colored aluminum and titanium.

“The Alchemist of Light High Jewelry collection represents the most creatively and technically ambitious collection we have ever conceived and crafted,” the CEO of De Beers Jewelers, Céline Assimon, said in a statement. “It incorporates exceptional diamonds in white and fancy colors, including some specially selected from our Natural Works of Art collection. Our design studio, collaborating with our specialist craftspeople, has created individual pieces that are truly wearable works of art.”

The collection comprises five different sets: Dusk Reflections, Ascending Shadows, Midnight Aura, Optional Wonder, and Frozen Capture. “There are so many elements that push boundaries. The Dusk Reflection set not only has detachable elements, but the magnificent choker also transforms into two cuffs, a masterpiece of artistry and technical execution. Both the Ascending Shadows and Optical Wonder sets use colored titanium and aluminum in striking pink and blue shades to sublime sculptural effect, showcasing both white and fancy color diamonds. Midnight Aura, evocative of cosmic stardust, sets diamonds within the green gemstone chrysoprase, while Frozen Capture layers diamonds juxtaposed with rock crystal motifs. Every piece is as exquisite as it is extraordinary.”

Pricing for the pieces is anywhere from $50,000 to $190,000 and is available on request.
