Shawish Introduces The World’s First Diamond Ring

Swiss luxury jeweller Shawish presented last week the making of “The World’s First Diamond Ring” at Il Bottaccio in Mayfair, London.
“The World’s First Diamond Ring” is an in-depth animation charting the creation of the £43million,150-carat ring composed entirely of a finished diamond, with the band carved directly into the stone.

London has been selected as the city to present this exclusive invitation-only event. Taking place at one of the capital’s top venues, Il Bottaccio on Grosvenor Place, the event started with a champagne reception and live music. Other highlights of the evening included a charity auction and a jaw-dropping performance by a contorting dancer covered with glitter and jewels.
Shawish’s most recent jewellery collection was also on display, with diamonds featuring prominently in many of the creations, either presented alone or teamed with other precious stones,  such as emeralds, amethysts, rubies or sapphires.
Shawish was founded by brothers Mohamed and Majdy Shawesh, and is headquartered in the heart of Geneva’s old town. Under the direction of its powerful artistic and creative force, Shawish is the result of years of planning and an intense interest in the diamond industry. The jewellery is assembled in-house by a team of highly-skilled craftsmen in a workshop adjoining the Shawish room.
“It’s a fantasy. It seemed impossible so we decided to embark on this adventure. We did it to make people’s dreams come true and to create the perfect diamond ring”, say the Shawesh brothers.

Tiffany &Co. has just unveils its first diamond engagement ring for men

Tiffany & Co. may have long upheld the idea that diamonds are a girl’s best friends, but now the American jeweller wants to make that the case for gentlemen, too.
Enter the The Charles Tiffany Setting, the very first line of men’s engagement rings to be offered by Tiffany & Co. It’s fittingly named after the luxury label’s founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany, who introduced the world to the women’s solitaire diamond engagement ring in 1886. Now, Tiffany & Co. is flipping traditions with its masculine counterpart.

Recalling the signet ring that has long been a staple of men’s jewellery, the centrepiece of the Charles Tiffany Setting is a sparkling solitaire diamond — ethically sourced, as Tiffany & Co. can ensure with an unprecedented level of transparency. The gemstone comes in either round brilliant or emerald cuts, and weighs up to five carats. In other words, you can’t miss it.
For now, The Charles Tiffany Setting is offered in platinum and titanium designs. The size of the round brilliant diamond is emphasised by a smooth, knife-edge band — the kind that has distinguished the iconic Tiffany Setting ring for women. As for the styles with emerald-cut diamonds, the shape of the gem is brought out by surrounding contours and the band’s bevelled edges.

All of which makes for a bold departure from the traditional men’s wedding band, which have always been plain in comparison to those worn by brides. Still, the The Charles Tiffany Setting collection didn’t arrive merely out of Tiffany & Co.’s determination to change the status quo. It has already been shifting, what with the rise of men’s interest in jewellery, fuelled in part by contemporary style icons like A$AP Rocky and Timothée Chalamet.
When it comes to adorning themselves with accessories, men now have more options than ever. That includes Tiffany & Co.’s first jewellery collection for men, launched in 2019. Similarly, luxury labels like Louis Vuitton and Dior have also unveiled jewellery lines dedicated to the other half of the population in the last few years.
It was only a matter of time before an engagement ring was designed just for them. The Charles Tiffany Setting, which marries striking details with a sense of classicism, will surely appeal to the modern man’s tastes. And if the gentleman so wishes, he can purchase one for himself at any Tiffany & Co. flagship around the world starting from May.

Tiffany & Co. debuts its first engagement ring for men

As the fashion world becomes increasingly gender-fluid, the jewellery universe has also been reconsidering the traditional codes governing masculinity. j=Just take a look at the men’s catalogues of grandes maisons like Cartier and Boucheron.
That sentiment is also echoed in Tiffany & Co.. In 2019, it launched a line for the gents, which includes necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings, watches, bar accessories, homewares and games. Now — and for the first time in the New York jeweller’s history — there’s a collection of engagement rings for grooms-to-be.
Dubbed “The Charles Tiffany Setting” after founder Charles Lewis Tiffany, the rings deviate from traditional wedding bands with a contemporary signet silhouette and a striking diamond centre set in thick platinum or titanium bands.

The first release offers two different cuts, round brilliant and emerald diamonds, in up to 5 carats. The pieces with a round brilliant diamond feature a streamlined knife-edge band inspired by the iconic Tiffany Setting, while the styles with an emerald-cut diamond boast architectural beveled edges. Like all the diamonds at Tiffany, the sparklers in the collection come with a certificate that the stone’s exact source, as well as where it was cut, polished, graded, quality assured and set.
“The Charles Tiffany Setting honours the jeweller’s long-standing legacy in love and inclusivity, paving the way for new traditions to celebrate our unique love stories and honour our most cherished commitments to one another,” said Tiffany in the announcement. Will he say yes?
