There are jewellery pieces to wear and gift and there are jewellery pieces to treasure, safeguard and celebrate for many generations. Like many of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures, The Jane Seymour is a timeless, impossibly rare piece.
The Jane Seymour is an incredibly rare blue diamond ring, in Platinum. In its rough state, it was hardly symmetrical in structure, which means that with one miscalculation, one slip, and its color would have disappeared entirely. Retaining techniques passed down from generations, some the world’s finest artisans spent almost a year deliberating, planning and painstakingly cutting the rough stone into a magnificent cushion-cut 2.08 carat diamond of perfect proportions. The scintillating diamond ring emulates a constellation, worthy enough to grace the red carpet of the Oscars.
Blue diamonds of this saturation have been known to fetch over USD 2,000,000 at Sotheby’s and Christie’s in the past, however, this ring is priceless after accounting for its celebrity recognition. The Jane Seymour was presented to Jane Seymour herself during a lavish dinner party at CÉ LA VI Singapore on the 25th April 2016 where it complemented her blue dress and her Open Hearts jewellery collection. The masterpiece then retreated to a vault as part of The World Of Diamonds’ private collection after the dinner.
The muse, Jane Seymour, starred as Bond girl in Live and Let Die, as Queen Marie-Antoinette in La Révolution française, had an appearance in Young Winston as Winston Churchill's lover, to name a few, she was the inspiration for the creation of this breathtakingly rare diamond, meticulously selected to illustrate the pride of eternity over matter, emotion and knowledge. Blue is the colour of all-inclusiveness, anything that is vast and beyond your perception generally tends to be blue, whether it is the ocean or the sky.
Seymour and the cast members of The Vortex were treated to an extravagant 12-course gastronomic dining experience at CÉ LA VI – the destination launched by L Capital Asia, the Asian private equity business sponsored by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), the world’s largest lifestyle conglomerate. The ring graced her finger for the evening and the celebrity received a rare 21.61 carat Amethyst – her birthstone, presented by WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group. Watch Seymour talking about the ring during an interview with Chanel News Asia.
It's impossible to find a piece of celebrity jewellery in the market, unless it is pre-owned, examples for this are the prized collections of Elizabeth Taylor, Ellen Barkin and Maria Felix. While the diamond in The Jane Seymour itself is worth over USD 2 Million, the masterpiece may sell for over USD 5 Million because of its star-studded recognition.
While the eventual buyer of the ring shouldn't even blink an eye at the price tag, the connoisseur must also fulfill certain criteria established at the discretion of the Group's Chairman. So far, there have been a few enquiries, including from royal families.
"The invitation to behold this creation would rather you not compare The Jane Seymour to anything else in the high jewellery world. It is a celebratory treat, more comparable to a mega-yacht or a ticket to the moon" said Karan Tilani, Director, World Of Diamonds Group.
