Have you ever imagined an all diamond diamond ring? Well, neither did I until receiving an invitation to Shawish Jewellers for the unveiling of just that. Shawish, the luxury Swiss Jewellers invited the media, socialites and diamond lovers alike to "embark on the journey of the making of 'The World?s First Diamond Ring?" over champagne and rosemary & elderflower cocktails at Il Bottaccio, Mayfair in April 2011. Estimated at £43million, the patented 150-carat ring composed entirely of a finished diamond will be completed on December 12th 2012 (12/12/12). A computer aided design was shown to whet the appetite of the guests, and the giant multi faceted diamond looked set to be spectacular.
Other gems from Shawish dressed the venue, a glistening selection of precious stones. A favourite being the 'Mushroom Tree,' featuring diamonds, emeralds, amethysts, sapphires and rubies with set on pink, white and yellow gold sculptured mushrooms. The enchanting display took continued on it's world tour, Russia being the next stop.
