De Beers

A brand name strongly associated with tradition, De Beers (888.376.9230, www.debeers.com) chose this year to present a series of imaginative collections that portray the classic diamond in various exotic lights. Its Valley of the Diamonds suite comprises an assortment of diamond-studded cobras and phoenixes, while the Amulets series depicts African tribal masks. Both of the collections employ the diamond in talismans of good luck or protection—a winning theme for the house. But the most inventive new design from De Beers is the house’s mesh diamond necklace, which is composed of nearly 2,000 stones set in a flexible collar.
