The Jane Seymour is the only celebrity ring in the world that isn’t pre-owned. It represents the A-lister who is overflowing with energy and preparing for her next roles in the film and theater industry. This masterpiece is unlike anything else the world has ever seen – blue is the color of all inclusiveness. Anything beyond our perception tends to be blue, whether the ocean or the sky. It is the first and only jewelry piece in the world named after Seymour herself. The fact that World Of Diamonds Group is a diamond behemoth involved in mining, polishing and distribution of diamonds and diamond jewelry makes it extremely unlikely that the Group ever has something available for the end consumer – The Jane Seymour is certainly among the prized exceptions since the corporation has contracts with high jewelry houses. This ring can fetch several million dollars because of its invaluable celebrity recognition alone and what’s most interesting is not only that the eventual buyer be able to afford it, but the connoisseur must also fulfill certain criteria established at the discretion of the Group’s Chairman.

The blue diamond was hardly symmetrical in structure, which meant that with one miscalculation, one slip, and its color would have disappeared entirely. Retaining techniques passed down from generations, among the world’s finest artisans spent almost a year deliberating, planning and painstakingly cutting the rough into a magnificent cushion-cut 2.08 carat diamond of perfect proportions. Platinum, among the most enduring metals in the world, was the choice for The Jane Seymour. The creation of the masterpiece required engaging World Of Diamonds Group’s top craftsmen to shape the contour of the ring, detail the flower motifs and configure the symmetry of the ring. This onerous task was only possible in Geneva through the diamond conglomerate’s design houses, with 3 masters working consecutively for over 2 weeks in rotational shifts. The Jane Seymour is signed “W.O.D. Genève” and hallmarked “PT950”.

During her trip to Singapore, Seymour was hosted for a welcome dinner by World Of Diamonds Group at CÉ LA VI. She was first presented to the ring then, which she flaunted on her graceful fingers, and well enhanced by the blue dress she wore. Her reaction was priceless as she was absolutely thrilled being able to boast a jewelry creation crafted in her honor, and named after her. Seymour had also spotted her Open Hearts jewelry collection which she is the designer for, and the message of “love has no boundaries and flows unconditionally” complemented the elegance of the beyond rare blue diamond ring.

World Of Diamonds didn’t want the ring to pass through an auction house since the Group would be able to be selective about the eventual buyer – this is a work of art and has to be appreciated by a true connoisseur and not meant to be just another jewelry piece. More importantly though, this is the only celebrity jewelry piece in the world that isn’t pre-owned, while almost all creations that pass through Sotheby’s or Christie’s are pre-owned.
The choice of plating was rose-gold because with the high jewelry masterpiece launched in Asia, the rose-gold setting would complement Asians’ skin tones. It provides the blue diamond a refreshing and unexpected outlook, and a combination of matt and gloss plating was utilized on the creation. The design was a floral motif to represent Seymour’s personality – her grace, elegance and demeanor. Despite her accomplishments, the celebrity is extremely down to earth, and therefore Erodium malacoides – the flower of choice, was used. Erodium malacoides are naturally purple to magenta in color, hence, the rose-gold plating was well represented.
