      DE BEERS ARIA CUFF BRACELET

      DE BEERS ARIA CUFF BRACELET

      DE BEERS ARIA PENDANT
      Suspended from a discreet bail, the 0.7 carat centre diamond shines with true brilliance.

      DE BEERS ARIA PAVED BAND
      Lines of diamond pavé are carefully crafted on two layers creating the gestures of the Aria motif.

        Featuring two layers of open work, this elegant cuff – part of the Aria Collection – is a pure gesture of light and movement. The artful fusion of ethereal dance and illuminated performance is expressed in the name Aria, meaning atmosphere and air in Latin and Italian. As the dance intensifies, so the pieces of the De Beers Aria Collection appear to build in momentum exuding from the focal diamond energetic swathes.  As dance pushes boundaries of physical constraints, so De Beers challenges the limitations of craftsmanship in the creation of this collection.
