Pair of Platinum and Diamond Double Loop Earrings by Graff
Pair of contemporary diamond dangle earrings by Graff. Designed as a set of concentric circles set with brilliant round-cut diamonds suspended from a triad of pear-shaped diamonds. Mounted in platinum. Total diamond weight approximately 30 carats. Signed. Circa 2010s.
Laurence Graff explains his creative process: “I though of other ways to create unique rings that everyone would want.” Graff’s originality lies in his unabashed embrace of excess. Graff embodies the maxim, ‘more is indeed more’. As he describes one of his earliest designs: “I took one diamond and placed 6 stones around it then 12 stones around that to create a 19 cluster.”
Graff functions under the Kimberley Process, never knowingly buying or selling diamonds from regions that would engender human suffering or conflict. In 2013 Mr Graff was awarded an Order of the British Empire. He admits: “I have always been fascinated with diamonds. I remember looking at them, studying them closely to understand their purity and the way they had been cut. It is an inherent feeling that has turning into a lifelong passion… I truly believe that working with diamonds is what I was born to do”.
