The winter 2013 edition of Graffiti, published for Graff Diamonds by Show Media, is out now, providing a fascinating insight into the stories and inspirations behind the house’s fine jewellery.
In celebration of the six decades Graff Diamonds founder Laurence Graff OBE has spent in the diamond industry, for this special issue Graff has stunningly recreated the brand’s iconic 1970 ‘Hair & Jewel’ image, which hit headlines at the time for its conceptual coiffure holding $1m-worth of diamonds and jewellery. This 21st-century reimaging of the shoot features 22 individual jewellery pieces – totalling $500m of diamonds – painstakingly incorporated into an elaborate feat of hairdressing. The image breaks records for having the most valuable trove of jewellery displayed in a single shot.
Elsewhere in the magazine, we look at how prince of Pop Art Roy Lichtenstein has influenced the visual world, discover Seoul’s new lease of life and find out the impact of the work done by Laurence Graff’s charitable foundation FACET. Further photo shoots showcase the company’s peerless jewels and unique rings, and offer a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse at the craftsmanship behind Graff Luxury Watches’ horological creations.
