In the framework of the Antwerp Diamond Year, which celebrates the 570th anniversary of the diamond trade in Antwerp, the Antwerp diamond industry enlisted Anne Zellien to design an affordable diamond jewelry collection.
Ari Epstein, CEO AWDC: “It is an often heard, but incorrect cliché that diamond jewelry is only affordable for ‘the happy few’. With this collection we want to demonstrate that you do not need to spend thousands of euros to own a lovely piece of high-quality diamond jewelry. Through this unique collection, we intend to make Antwerp’s diamonds more accessible for anyone who is fascinated by them.”
Anne Zellien is known for her affordable jewelry collections with a positive or personal message. Her jewelry is often purchased as a talisman, and she wanted this to be the focus for this new collection as well. In these hectic times, with its overabundance of information and stimuli, she specifically sought inspiration in nature and the protection of the universe. Stars, moons, angel wings and birds adorned with sparkling diamonds serve as the common thread in this Diamonds & Antwerp collection.
Anne designed an edgy silver collection and an ethereal 18 carat gold collection. With regards to the choice of diamonds, Anne collaborated with IGC Group, one of the leading Antwerp diamond companies and specialized in the 'finest make' in diamonds.
“The Sheltering Sky” a Diamonds & Antwerp Collection by Anne Zellien is available as from 27 April 2017. Prices start at €150.
