This diamond suite, called the C'ote d'Azur Suite, comprising matching necklace, bracelet and earrings, is a contemporary piece set in 18 carat white gold. Designed to be worn both formally and informally, winter or summer, the diamonds in the suite are uniform in size and relatively small, though there are so many of them that the suite has a vibrancy and élan all of its own.
"I often wear this in summer when I am in the South of France or Southampton in the U.S.," Lady Colin Campbell says. "Because it is both simple and stylish, with no hint of ostentatiousness, one gets a tremendous amount of wear out of it, especially when one is going to be with people who shy away from statement jewels. For variety, I sometimes wear the necklace and bracelet with different earrings. Because this suite doesn't have its own ring, I rotate a few favourites, though I wear the honey-coloured and white diamond ring with it more than anything else. I find that the drop-dead splendour of the ring balances the simplicity of the rest perfectly."
Because the stones in this suite should not be appreciably larger than they are at present, the suite in white gold starts at a relatively modest £235,000 and should not exceed £315,000 in any event.
The ring with a similar sized yellow diamond and white diamonds set in white 18 carat gold starts at £2,415,000.
