Often called the “king of diamonds,” Laurence Graff is a single-minded businessman and jeweler who established a global brand in five decades. Graff began his journey in the jewelry industry at the age of 15 as an apprentice at a local shop. Soon, he was working independently as a jewelry designer, supplying several firms across the U.K. He founded Graff Diamonds in 1960, a company that has since grown to serve celebrities and royals. The upcoming Graff: Light and Form dedicated auction, presented by Sotheby’s, highlights dozens of Graff jewelry pieces, including a sapphire and diamond necklace. This piece features clusters of pear-shaped sapphires and diamonds.
Another highlighted lot from the event is a Graff diamond and emerald Serpentine bracelet-watch. Set in 18-karat white gold, the bracelet-watch resembles a coiled snake. The head of the serpent bears a triangular dial concealed by a pear-shaped diamond. A pink diamond clip brooch shaped like a pair of embracing koala bears is also available.
