About the Assouline De Beers Book
De Beers Diamond Jewellers are proud to introduce the De Beers book, published by Assouline, a sublime testimony of the De Beers Ethos. From the early myths surrounding diamonds to their first discovery in India, and the painstaking creation of timeless modern-day treasures, this beautiful publication is a journey that we invite you to take with us.
Through a text written by the eminent jewellery writer, Vivienne Becker, the De Beers book laces together the diamond’s dualities of science and poetry, and unites with them out rich history of creativity and craftsmanship. The exquisite edition features a range of artworks from up-and-coming and established artists, such as Wolfgang Tillmans and Damien Hirst. By placing out ethos in the context of contemporary art from around the world, we explore art in nature and the innate beauty of creativity.
De Beers presents to you this inspirational glimpse at the home of the eternal diamond, where both rough and polished diamonds shine with the sparkle and light of life.
