The Art of Design
INSPIRED BY LOVE AND ROMANCE
“Since the dawn of time, diamonds have been a symbol of love”
Since the dawn of time, diamonds have been a symbol of love, luck and romance. The most beautiful of Mother Nature’s creations, diamonds have long been esteemed alongside the most pleasing creations of mankind: art, music and literature.
As these creative expressions are so often motivated by love, so too do diamonds celebrate love, and commemorate, the great romances.
In creating designs that truly befit the joyous celebration of love between two people, Robert Cliff and his sons Daniel and James have looked beyond the profound romance evoked by diamonds and taken inspiration from the world’s most provocative symbols of romance. Our bridal collection was created in tribute to one of the world’s most exciting, exhilarating and pleasurable emotions; “love”.
Featuring specially selected Robert Cliff diamonds set against white gold, yellow gold and platinum, we create, with the most exacting level of craftsmanship, exquisite pieces which are a testament to what we do best, and which are certain to bring you unbridled happiness for years to come.
Inspired By Colour
“Artistic and expertly trained, our designers are constantly raising the bar by insisting that amazingly lustrous colours are present used in every coloured stone design”
Artistic and expertly trained, our designers are constantly raising the bar by insisting that amazingly lustrous colours are present used in every coloured stone design
When contemplating a new design, the thought process begins with the gemstone’s colour.
It must make Roberts heart beat faster, convey unique emotion, and be the most captivating expression of self it can be. Its beautiful spirit, bewitching charm and character render the stone irresistibly engaging. Only then, will it be permitted to become a Robert Cliff design.
In no other collection, is the passionate intensity or soft subtlety of hues, more evident, than in our coloured stone jewellery collection.
Inspired By Light
“Diamonds are the ‘star’ of many of the world’s most lavish pieces of jewellery, but what makes these small rocks shine the way they do? ”
Diamonds are the ‘star’ of many of the world’s most lavish pieces of jewellery, but what makes these small rocks shine the way they do?
The short answer, is that they are expertly cut and polished, to maximise the diamond’s ability to catch and reflect light. The full answer is more detailed, but equally, far more interesting!
Diamonds get their brilliance from three things; reflection, refraction and dispersion. Reflection is the light that hits the diamond and is immediately bounced back up, giving it an instantaneous shine. While this glimmer is impressive, it’s only the very tip of the true radiance a diamond displays. Only a portion of the light hitting a diamond is reflected, the rest simply passes right through it. At Robert Cliff Master Jewellers, each design is specifically created to ensure every diamond gets the exact amount of light required to show its respective beauty. Our diamond ring collection is a perfect example of the importance of ‘correct design’ allowing the exact amount of light required, to properly showcase, the diamond itself. It is after all, the star!
