LOVE IN MIST
DIAMOND AND SAPPHIRE SUITE
With its joyful air of optimism, spring is the season synonymous with romance in full bloom. The Love in Mist diamond and sapphire suite is an ode to this season of love, when nature awakens from its wintry sleep and blossoms. Reminiscent of the airy foliage that surrounds the gentle, blue blooms of springtime, stunning cushion-shaped blue Burmese and Sri Lankan sapphires of 92.74, so captivating in their intensity, so vibrant with life, are intricately set at the heart of round, marquise, pear-shaped, and baguette diamonds totaling 187.65 carat. Designed with impossible intricacy and remarkable savoir-faire, this outstanding work of art stirs the emotions and captivates with its unworldly charm.
BEHIND THE DESIGN
To create the Love in Mist diamond and sapphire suite, a team of expert designers and adept artisans united their knowledge and talent in an exhaustive creative process. From the initial designs, presented in the form of gouache drawings, to the development of the three-dimensional models and the production of the pieces, experts worked closely so that the creative spirit of the original sketches could be transformed into an exceptional work of art.
For this stunning ensemble, Mouawad designers drew inspiration from the first days of springtime, when blooming flowers of all colors announced the subtle awakening of nature from its sweet winter sleep. Insights were then brought to life through a stunning selection of one-of-a-kind sapphires set amidst round, marquise, pear-shaped, and baguette white diamonds interwoven together with 18-karat white gold.
Poise and harmonious appeal were also two main strands of the design process. The masterful arrangement of blue sapphires, each enlivening a shimmering backdrop of icy white diamonds, created an eye-catching effect of color and a stunning, almost blinding, radiance of light. The result is a unique, show-stopping masterpiece, only possible by Mouawad.
One of the Big 3 of colored gemstones, sapphire is a durable stone that captures jewelry buyers with its practicality and aura of romance. Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. The stone comes in a variety of colors, but when the word ‘sapphire’ stands alone, this usually means that the gem is blue.
Blue sapphires lie well hidden in just a few places around the world, and, in addition to their size, color, and transparency, their origin plays a key role in determining their value. The first sapphires were found in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), where people were already digging for gemstones in ancient times.
