Jane Seymour, OBE is not only a star in the realms of Hollywood, but a tour de force in the world of diamonds. Influenced and endorsed by Seymour, The Jane Seymour is a sensational blue diamond ring, and the only jewelry creation in the world named after the celebrity herself. A 2.08 carat marvel took among the world's top artisans, in Geneva, many weeks to bring the rose-gold plated, platinum ring to life. The magical endeavor involved Russian-based World Of Diamonds Group, among the world's largest diamond corporations, which decided to honor the Bond girl and A-lister Jane for her accomplishments. Finally, Seymour has been immortalized, at least in the world of high jewelry.
Unfortunately, celebrity jewelry pieces are not available in the market, unless they are pre-owned – for example, the prized collections of Elizabeth Taylor, Ellen Barkin and Maria Felix. Illustrating the scarcity of such masterpieces, while the diamond in The Jane Seymour itself is worth over USD 2,000,000 according to market sources and recent records from Sotheby's and Christie's, the sparkler may even sell for over USD 5,000,000 because of its star-studded recognition. Yes, the masterpiece has been literally sprinkled with stardust.
At the unveiling of the jewel in Singapore, Seymour was hosted for a welcome dinner by World Of Diamonds Group at CÉ LA VI. The GIA-certified, cushion-cut diamond ring was first presented to her then, which she flattered through her graceful fingers, and well accompanied by the blue dress she flaunted. She was nearly speechless, being able to boast a rare jewelry creation crafted in her honor, and she wasted no time in snapping 'selfies' with the ring before authenticating the masterpiece through the signing of several catalogues of The Jane Seymour. The A-lister had later stated in an interview with Singapore's Channel NewsAsia that the ring was “matching and doing very well” with her Open Hearts bracelet, so this is reassuring for Seymour's fans that the bejeweled treasure may also complement the Open Hearts jewelry collection which she is the designer for.
Blue diamonds are undoubtedly, extremely sought after. An impossibly rare diamond has been meticulously selected to illustrate the pride of eternity over matter, emotion and knowledge. Karan Tilani, Director of WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group stated “The invitation to behold this creation would rather you not compare The Jane Seymour to anything else in the high jewelry world. It is a celebratory treat, more comparable to a mega-yacht or a ticket to the moon.” The ring's 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.
While the eventual buyer of the ring shouldn't even blink an eye at the price tag (the celebrity association of the ring alone is worth many million dollars), it is known in the world of extreme luxury that money can't buy everything. The connoisseur must also fulfill certain criteria established at the discretion of the Group's Chairman. So far, there have been a few enquiries, including from royal families not surprisingly, but who will be the eventual owner of this ring is what the world is waiting for.
