Blue Flame Diamond
Eurostar has introduced a new branded diamond cut called the Blue Flame. The cut has 89 facets and goes with a specially designed line of jewelry, all made for Tesiro, a partnership between Eurostar and China’s Tongling Group that runs more than 150 retail jewelry outlets in China. The Blue Flame cut was introduced in Antwerp, where it was designed by two master cutters, Bernard Van Pul and Koen Van Ishoven. Its next stop is the Berlin Film Festival, which Tesiro co-sponsors. The new cut will appear in jewelry worn by film stars Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet and Catherine Zeta Jones. The official launch is scheduled for the end of January at the Rubens House in Antwerp. The first Blue Flame diamond will feature an HRD Antwerp diamond grading certificate. “The Blue Flame diamond cut was designed by two Antwerp cutters, Bernard Van Pul and Koen Van Ishoven,” said Freddy J. Hanard, CEO of the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC).
