Two extraordinary rough diamond cuffs designed by L’wren Scott were seen on the Red Carpet today at the 79th Academy Awards. The cuffs, worn by Nicole Kidman, display 187 diamonds totalling massive 375 carats and represent a unique and fresh direction in diamond jewellery.

The cuffs, designed by Scott and manufactured by diamantaire William Goldberg, utilize very
unusual “arrowhead” shaped diamonds that are known as maccles. These are distorted octahedrals that at some point in their growth have “changed direction” causing the distinctive triangle shape. These gems are rough uncut diamonds from the Diamond Trading Company (DTC) being shown in their absolutely natural state. Each diamond was individually selected by the designer to fit together into the overall design. These unique diamonds are typically found in diamond mines in Botswana, Russia, and South Africa.

L’wren Scott is a talented designer of both a newly launched eponymous clothing line and diamond jewellery. The diamond pieces she has designed have appeared on the Oscar Red Carpet in the past also.

William Goldberg, part of the Leo Schachter Group, has been a leader in diamond jewellery for over 50 years. Known for their passion and commitment to the highest quality of diamonds and craftsmanship, William Goldberg has a history of producing exceptional diamond pieces.
