“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” These words by John Keats were used by Audrey Hepburn to describe The Tiffany Diamond, a gorgeous 128.54-carat yellow diamond, one of the most famous stones of its type in the world. In fact Tiffany is renowned for these legendary gemstones that over the years have captured many a heart with their intense glow. These coloured stones are particularly rare: according to experts, only one in every 10,000 diamonds is a fancy coloured diamond. They acquire their vibrant tone as a result of impurities or defects within their structure, though this only makes them more attractive to those who appreciate their value.
Today, in their 175th anniversary year, Tiffany & Co. present a dazzling new collection, titled ‘Colours of Wonder,’ that majestically showcases the beauty of these rare diamonds. Made up of blossoms of orange, pink, blue, green and of course the label’s signature yellow diamonds, this collection enhances the beauty of these rare gems as well as that of the woman who wears them. Further proof of the fact that the description ‘the King of Diamonds,’ coined for Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1848, is just as fitting today as it always has been.
