Le Roi Soleil Diamond Brooch

Inspired by a brooch owned by the Sun King Louis XIV, Le Roi Soleil is a brilliant-cut diamond brooch that combines the best of the old and the new. Utterly contemporary yet completely classical, this brooch screams cachet from a distance.
Lady Colin Campbell says, "I defy any woman to pin that brooch on her and feel anything but ultra-special.
"I get a surprising amount of wear out of it. I wear it to Ascot every year. I wore it to the opening of the Scaasi Exhibition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in Spetember 2010, when Bill Cunningham photographed me in it for the New York Times. And sometimes, when I want to create a stir, I wear it out to dinner pinned to a plain black cashmere blouse or linen dress. It never fails to make people's eyes spin, much to one's amusement."
Le Roi Soleil, with a quantity of brilliant-cut blue-white diamonds of superior quality, set in white 18 carat, starts at £720,000.
