Assouline Coffee Table Book Diamonds: Diamond Stories
Formed billions of years ago deep below the surface of the earth, natural diamonds have always had an ethereal mysticism about them. Once reserved only for royals, red carpets, and life’s most celebratory moments, diamonds were seen as symbols of wealth and prosperity that only few could access. But with a new century comes a new expression of luxury, as a new crop of young designers and heritage jewelry houses alike including Sabyasachi, Messika, Anita Ko, Boucheron, and Fernando Jorge are celebrating natural diamonds as an everyday indulgence. Today’s tastemakers are incorporating diamonds into their designs in unexpected ways, unafraid to play around with interesting cuts and colorful hues.
In telling the story of today’s expression of natural diamonds and their continous impact on the world, this new volume dives into tales of the world’s most captivating stones, from the Hope Diamond to the legend of the Beau Sancy Diamond. Featuring stunning images; tall tales; and interviews with top designers, tastemakers, and enthusiasts alike; Diamonds is the definitive book on the world’s most sought-after jewel.
