Graff Diamonds to exhibit at La Biennale
September 10, 2014 – Graff will mark its return to La Biennale (September 11-21, 2014, Grand Palais, Paris) with a breathtaking jewellery collection, incorporating exquisitely rare diamonds and gemstones.
Standout pieces include the Royal Star of Paris; a mesmeric brooch (which can also be worn as a pendant) featuring the Graff Sunflower, a 107.46 carat Fancy Yellow cushion cut diamond and the Graff Perfection, a 100.00 carat D Flawless pear shape diamond drop.
The world has seen very few diamonds that exceed 100 carats, so it is unprecedented that two stones of such magnificent quality and carat weight have been brought together in one jewel.
Commenting on the Graff Perfection, Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds, said: “We create legendary stones with remarkable stories to tell – one such diamond is the Graff Perfection.
“Following many hours of painstaking work, we unleashed the true potential of an incredible 225 carat rough diamond, transforming it from perfection to ultra-perfection.”
Another jewel, Le Collier Bleu de Reve is set with a captivating 10.47 carat Fancy Vivid Blue Internally Flawless briolette diamond, an extremely unique cut and one of the rarest and finest blue diamonds in the world.
The hypnotic briolette is beautifully juxtaposed with a striking 4.22 carat untreated old-mine Colombian emerald.
A transformable jewellery piece, the central element can be detached from the beaded diamond necklace and worn alone as a brooch.
Mr Graff continued: “I truly believe that when you are searching for the perfect precious gemstone you should look for an emerald greener than green, a ruby redder than red and a sapphire bluer than blue.
“The emerald in this necklace really is greener than green and incredibly clear; it is one of the most exquisite emeralds I have ever seen – a true treasure.”
Graff’s Biennale collection is truly exceptional, requiring the hard work, passion and determination of every individual within its London atelier, to ensure that each jewel is expertly crafted, from concept to realisation.
Further jewellery pieces continue a central theme of stone-led design; with striking brooches featuring rare coloured diamonds and gemstones, necklaces depicting the beauty of nature in gemstone form and designs with dramatic beaded tassels all complemented by bracelets and earrings echoing the central motif.
Located at S.B 4 and S.B 5, Graff’s stand incorporates a striking selection of luxurious design elements and unique features that can be seen throughout its network of 46 stores globally.
Curated by Graff’s Monaco-based interior design team it boasts boldly striped marble floors, walnut wall panelling and bronze showcases, plus a visually arresting gold engraved glass wall which forms the centrepiece of the stand.
Every design detail is bespoke, incorporating the finest materials available.
