De Beers presents a collection that takes inspiration from the beautiful Lotus flower, and the five different stages that the Lotus flower goes through: from beneath the surface of the water to its slow ascension towards the sky.

The five stages in the journey in which the beautiful lotus flower rises out of water and into the light are intricately brought to life by De Beers through each stunning piece from the Lotus collection. Each moment of the flower’s transformation, opening of every petal and evocative scene dazzles through the brand’s unique diamond expertise. Here we highlight the five designs that shadow each stage.
Stage 1: The Awakening
The lotus flower makes its mark the moment its petals emerge above the water line, shedding the last droplet of water from its petals, leaving a subtle ripple on the water in its wake. This moment is embodied by the Awakening Lotus design, which draws the eye along rippling lines of round and marquise-cut diamonds to a magnificent 18.79 carat rough bluish green macle.

Stage 2: The Blooming
The emergence of the lotus flower into the light is artistically expressed through the Blooming Lotus; a unique set of diamond high jewellery centred on a three-dimensional diamond flower motif.
The Blooming Lotus Necklace is adorned with three exceptional pear-shaped diamond petals, supported by a pear, a marquise and baguette-cut diamond silhouette echoing that of a lotus flower. This technically-superb and striking focal point can be detached and worn as a brooch.
Stage 3: The Flourishing
The Flourishing Lotus shines the light on the moment a lotus flower responds to the call of the midday sun by opening up to its fullest in perfect symmetry, similar to the collection’s pristine alignment of facets within the exceptional diamond used.

Stage 4: The Radiating
The Radiating Lotus celebrates the mythology of the lotus flower and the Ancient Egyptian belief that each bloom is a talisman of rebirth and regeneration, and reintroduces this idea in the form of jewels that features petal-shaped marquise diamonds, rows of fan-like round brilliant diamond peaks and kite-shaped cascades of princess-cut and round brilliant-cut diamonds.

Stage 5: The Radiating
The final set in the Lotus by De Beers High Jewellery Collection highlights the final stage of the lotus flower’s journey, in which the serene peacefulness and tranquillity of a pond draped with lotus flowers and lily pads is channelled through the Soothing Lotus set: rough and polished diamonds are artfully arranged, in a harmonious balance of colour, shape and texture.
