IF A JEWELLER NEEDED A LOUPE
AS BIG AS THE SUN,
IMAGINE THE DIAMOND'S SIZE
THE CENTAURI LUCY STORY
Fifty light-years away from Earth are the constellation Centaurus. Here twinkles a single star that shone so brilliantly during its life that it became a diamond. But not just any diamond. A 10 billion-trillion-trillion carat cosmic diamond. It's not something you could hold in your hand. In fact, you’d need a jeweler's loupe the size of our sun to grade it. Astronomers officially called this star V886 Centauri. But even they were so inspired by its loveliness that they nicknamed her Lucy after the famous Beatles song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. Over ten years ago in 2005, we too reached for the stars for inspiration. Then we reached back down to earth to discover some of the rarest diamonds on our planet are right at our fingertips in Australia.
Our design process is elegantly simple.
We source only the best conflict-free diamonds and gems that are certified by third party guarantees so you can be assured of quality, origin and value. Then we reach for the stars in making every diamond and gem stone live up to its fullest potential. Diamonds can be up to 3 billion years in the making. And when you’ve been waiting that long to shine, then you deserve to be transformed into something truly brilliant. Something awe inspiring. So our chief designer leads a team of crafts people that not just live up to a diamond’s potential, but take it to a whole new level. It takes time. But we insist on it. So when you are wearing one of our pieces you are not just wearing any diamond or gem — you are wearing a CENTAURI LUCY piece. It means that you shine as brilliantly as a diamond star so epic in size that it’s impossible to grade. And quite simply that the Centauri Lucy spirit shines from within you for everyone to see.
IT TAKES ASTRONOMICAL
PRESSURE AND IMMENSE HEAT
TO CREATE A RARE DIAMOND.
BUT OUR CHIEF DESIGNER THRIVES
UNDER THESE CONDITIONS.
Think about this: a single diamond has been waiting underground for up to 3 billion years to shine. So when the time comes for it to take its place in the sun, nothing should distract from its immense beauty. That’s why we created the Centauri Lucy Classic Collection. We select only the rarest of the rare natural diamonds from a full spectrum of colors including pinks, blues, greens through to blacks. Once chosen, our design philosophy is to let that single yet multi-faceted diamond shine. Nothing should distract. from its elegant simplicity. This collection is presented in three unique series of Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. All designs are modern, elegant and uncomplicated. By making one simple, elegant diamond the center of our design universe, then its inner beauty is revealed all to see.
Sometimes you need to look back at our world’s rich history for inspiration to go confidently into the future.From the Renaissance through to the 20th Century Modernists periods our imagination was stirred to create. The result is our Centauri Lucy Heritage Collection.Baroque, Art Nouveau and Art Deco art movements led us forward. Not just in our design studio but also the level of craftsmanship bestowed upon each piece in our workshop.We select only the finest quality diamonds, gems and gold to ensure each piece carries not just its beauty into the future but also its precious value.Then to honor the past, we complete each piece by christening it with the name of a famous artist or icon of the era that inspired it. Many of the pieces that inspired this collection remain in famous museums and private family collections around the world. No doubt as you build your private collection, you’ll want to keep the pieces of the Heritage Collection for future generations as well.
