The VIP Collection will expand over the coming weeks and months and will feature a selection of some of the finest diamonds and jewellery we have been privileged to photograph throughout our career.
THE MILLENNIUM STAR
In 1999 we photographed this fabulous diamond for the special Centurions Promotion for Tatler, Conde Nast. Timothy Rennie was the Art Director and we shot the stone in the inner sanctum of DTC (Diamond Trading Company) just down the from our studio. Without a doubt it was the most beautiful diamond we have ever seen.
The diamond was uncovered in the early 1990s and began life as a huge 777-carat rough. It was designed and cut by Diacore over an intense three year period. The finished stone is a spectacular classic pear-shape, weighing 203.04 carats. The Millennium Star is one of the most magnificent diamonds of all time, to hold it is literally to hold history in your hand.
The Millennium Star and The Midnight Collection of blue diamonds are known as 'The Millennium Collection' and they made their world debut in London in the millennial year, as the main exhibit in an exclusive exhibition held at the famous Millennium Dome.
