De Beers unveils sparkling Forces of Nature ring collection
UPON hearing the mention of diamonds, it’s only natural for one’s mind to wander to De Beers. Since being established in 1888, De Beers has become known across the globe for its research into high-quality diamonds.
Now, De Beers has just unveiled its De Beers Forces of Nature collection.

Crafting a prestigious new collection based upon eight animals native to southern Africa, De Beers has opted to showcase designs inspired by the natural world. The new collection consists of eight solitaire diamond rings – each accompanied by a crown or jacket. Working alongside its high jewellery atelier, the House has delivered yet another infallible offering.
Each ring, despite being intentionally abstracted, depicts the animals in all their glory. In particular, the lion-inspired Jacket Ring features a mane formed from beaded gold and a 5.09-carat warm-white trilliant-cut diamond. The other animals included in the collection include the rhino, leopard, zebra, buffalo, kudu, elephant and giraffe.

The eight featured animals are an ode to the natural intoxicating beauty of the African continent, whose earth yields jaw-dropping natural treasures. When designing the rings, we had no constraints: we were guided by the individual character of eight extraordinary diamonds.”
