Luxury launches website VeryFirstTo and eminent jeweller Martin Jefferies of Jefferies of London are proud to announce the launch of The Diamond Memories Egg.
This unprecedented sparkling egg, covered in a myriad of diamonds, opens to reveal two gleaming elegant photo frames.
Set With 910 Brilliant Cut Diamonds
The magnificent sculpted egg crafted in 18 carat white gold is intricately set with 910 brilliant cut, flawless, D colour diamonds weighing approximately 60 carats. Opening this hinged objet d’art reveals a pair of 18 carat highly polished yellow gold picture frames encased in a matt finish surround.
Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, Superbrands and Cool BrandLeaders, says: “This Diamond Memories Egg is not just a beautiful ornament, but comes with a gold chain enabling it to be instantly turned into a spectacular scintillating locket – a truly striking piece of haute joaillerie.”
Third Generation Jeweller
There is no other item like The Diamond Memories Egg, its creation is thanks to the imagination, design talent and craftsmanship of Martin Jefferies, a British third generation jeweller who’s past work has included work for Fabergé and Asprey. The gold workmanship is undertaken by one of the UK’s foremost goldsmiths, whose skills have won him accolades at the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship & Design Awards and whose work includes gifts presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The piece demands 10 weeks of combined skills to complete.
About The Diamond Memories Egg
The Diamond Memories Egg is pavé set with the highest quality diamonds possible. It is crafted with intricate setting techniques and then highly polished assisting the exceptional light colour refracting properties of the diamonds, leading to a kaleidoscopic, twinkling, display of colour in a celebration of life.
Jewelry Inspired by the Symbolism of the Egg
Martin Jefferies says of the Egg “I conceived the idea of an egg presented in glorious fashion, because the egg is such a precious entity. It is the source of life. The design is a universal symbol representing life, togetherness, peace, love and so much more.”
The egg is an internationally renowned symbol of life and resurrection, throughout many cultures it represents fertility, beauty, light and even magic.
