High jewelry that transforms itself and becomes the subject of a metamorphosis. It happens with the new De Beers collection Metamorphosis which is inspired by the transformation of something, or someone, into another of a different nature, as happens in mythological or fantasy stories. But, in this case, the metamorphoses are those that are part of nature, at least in the intentions of the specialized brand and almost synonymous with diamonds. In any case, jewels are ideally linked to natural events, such as the four seasons. Precisely for this reason, the jewels have been designed and created with warm colours, such as pink or yellow gold, brown and yellow diamonds.
Furthermore, the goldsmith’s work is very elaborate, with refined setting of precious stones. Goldsmith technique enthusiasts can admire the use of a fil couteau (i.e. a knife setting), a serti neige (i.e. a sort of snow pavé, more irregular) and the use of perlage (i.e. gold beads ). Among the others, for its creative flair, an ear cuff-style earring with four finely crafted fringes hanging from diamonds of different sizes stands out. At the end of each fringe is a colored titanium drop. These items can also be removed and worn separately, as charms on a bracelet.
The necklace can also be transformed with a detachable clip and pear-shaped yellow diamond: it can be worn individually as a brooch. These, however, are only the first jewels of the collection, a line called Prelude. More pieces will arrive for the summer.
