Sotheby's Diamonds House Signatures: The Thistle Collection

Imagine turning an accepted jewellery technique on its head, literally. Normal conventions dictate that a diamond is set with the flat top (or table) visible to the wearer; it’s this surface area that lets in the most amount of light. But Sotheby’s Diamonds has done the brave and unthinkable – setting diamonds upside down so that the pointed culet sits proud. The effect is spiky, punky and daringly contemporary; a setting tour-de-force in its own right, and the perfect accompaniment to exceptional diamonds. Click ahead to see the collection.
