De Beers Debuts Decadent Creations from the Red Carpet

By Eliza Jordan

May 20, 2016

Diamond powerhouse De Beers is showcasing an array of precious gems—a collection that is particularly interesting to those who want a closer look at what celebrities have worn and will wear. Earlier this month, Whitewall caught sight of the brand’s Red Carpet Collection, a decadent presentation of jewels that stars have worn, and some that are imagined to be worn soon. In the sprawling penthouse of the Quin Hotel, we gladly got an eye-full of detachable, dangling, and jaw-dropping diamonds, and even tried on a few for size. (Throughout our time in the penthouse, we thought it was only right to wear the white gold Arpeggia Eleven-Line Necklace, which was an outstanding 11-strand necklace of over 75 carats of diamonds.)

On display throughout the room, and arranged on stands around a red carpet, we saw a number of jewelry pieces worn by celebrities, like a long white gold strand of over 53 carats, the Wavy Lines necklace, seen double-wrapped around the neck by Rita Ora, and the luxurious white gold Aria earrings, oversized for and previously worn by Cate Blanchett. We also took notice of a white gold triangular mesh of over 173 carats in the Mosaic necklace, once a favorite of Zaha Hadid’s, and several other rings, earrings, necklaces, brooches, bracelets, and watches.

There was a colored diamond comeback in the Aura Cushion-Cut Fancy Coloured Diamond Ring, and an insanely beautiful three-tier cuff of over 16 carats in the Phenomena Stream Bracelet. One striking brooch could be worn as pendant—the white gold Phenomena Sunbeam Brooch with over 14 carats.

A few pieces to keep your eyes open for when watching the next red carpet event: the swirling platinum Imaginary Nature Ascending Ring, totaling to over 23 carats of mixed-cut and baguette diamonds; the white gold Phenomena Frost Ring, made up of three pointing rows of diamonds surrounding a middle stone, and totaling to over 11 carats; the platinum Drops of Light earrings, with removable bottom diamonds that allow for a stud or drop-down option; and last but not least, the white gold Idalia necklace, with over 34 carats of diamonds fit for a princess.
