  • Catalogue Essay

    Founded in 1888 by Cecil Rhodes, De Beers have been the leaders in the field of mining and the trading of rough diamonds as well as high jewellery over the past century. As a member of the sightholder, the firm was responsible of supplying over 80% of the world’s rough diamond distribution until the start of the 21st century. With that said, De Beers have been continuously growing their brand as one of the top jewelers in the world offering the finest diamond-set jewellery to the world’s elites. To commemorate the new millennium, De Beers made a limited edition series of diamond-filled Hour Glass timers as gifts to their most loyal clients around the globe and for the Japanese market. The present example features a beautiful gold plated frame encapsulating 2,000 diamonds that fall effortlessly within the Hour Glass. Accompanied by an illuminated stand it is further complete with its original fitted presentation box as well as a limited edition card stating that the present hour glass is numbered 1,280 of a limited edition of 2,000 examples.
