The new MIUZ collection celebrates diamonds. The Empire collection was inspired by one of the most famous diamond pieces – Princess Diana’s engagement ring. Prince Charles (today King Charles III) and Diana Frances Spencer in 1981 went against the long-standing tradition of royal families choosing stones from the family jewels for their wedding rings. The future spouses chose a ready-made ring from the collection of the jewelry brand Garrard, that is, they purchased it just like ordinary customers.
Diana’s iconic ring is made of 18 karat white gold, set with an oval 12 karat Ceylon sapphire and surrounded by 14 solitaire diamonds. In 1981, the ring cost $37,500.
MIUZ Diamonds jewelers created their own interpretation of the ring, not forgetting about the brand’s DNA and trends. For example, the shade of sapphire became black, and the diamond frame became lighter. At the same time, stones of classic baguette cuts have retained their clear lines and symmetry. The design is also repeated in the earrings. Even the mechanism lock is studded with diamonds.
The Empire collection also features deep wine-colored rubies, which are highlighted by octagon-cut diamonds.
When creating another ring, the jewelers used rubellite (1.81 carats) in an oval cut, which emphasizes the scale. The center stone is flanked on both sides by baguette-cut diamonds flowing into a line of round stones.
