It is a ray of sun, that saturated on Earth and cooled down with time...It scintillates with so many colours but is transparent as a drop of water.
Russian Writer Kuprin about a diamond
Jewelry has a lot of symbolic charge. It's attached to seduction, like a gift from a man to a woman that he loves. Or it's something that you keep and want to give to your daughter. It can mean sex, because some women are making love for jewelry! It can also be something violent, like someone is going to kill you for it. Jewelry can be a weapon for a woman, too. It's always connected to big romantic stories. I love that.
Victoire de Castellane about symbolism of jewellery
My reason for choosing diamonds is that, dense as they are, they represent the greatest worth in the smallest volume.
Coco Chanel about diamonds
I feel like it [creating jewellery] is a never-ending quest, and as soon as I am done with one challenge, I start looking for another one. It does no good to indulge oneself in achievement, no matter how enjoyable it is.
Wallace Chan about making jewellery
It is in freedom and the details that you find pure luxury. The underside of the necklace is as elaborate as the front. Whether you look at the jewellery from the front, back or side, every curve, line and colour needs to be balanced and pleasing to the eye and to touch…And freedom also signifies luxury.”
Fawaz Gruozi about luxury
When you are bored, feeling alone, jewellery protects you.I love all bad vanishing, just the memory of what's beautiful staying in my mind. Life is not like that. That's why I do jewellery.
Victoire de Castellane
I always believed, right from the beginning, if you're going to do something, do it the best. If you're going to work, you want to enjoy it-make a product that you really enjoy selling or owning.
I do think that beauty and joy are paramount in life as it can be very hard. I think something like this which is such a luxury and so costly should bring you pleasure and joy.
Solange Azagury-Partridge about jewellery
The most precious jewels are not made of stone, but of flesh.
You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you.
The finishing polish and symmetry are important points when buying a diamond. They are the elements that give a stone the extra sparkle and shine. But don't just look at the certificate, look at the diamonds and compare brilliance: a diamond is not a diamond unless it has the fire.
