Mumbai: The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) in collaboration with Condé Nast Traveller has released The Diamond Standard List recognising the best jewellery brands in the Indian industry. A pioneering initiative, this special index curated by the editors is a part of the magazine’s revered Gold List 2022. Celebrating extraordinary craftsmanship and remarkable experiences, this list recognises jewellers who have set the artistry and design standard for natural diamonds, by creating pieces that move and fascinate, while championing originality and technical innovation.
The Diamond Standard List is an exclusive annual rhapsody on natural diamond jewellery that is truly exceptional, featuring selections that reflect the sensibilities and tastes of consumers. The list, divided into three categories – Heritage Icons, The Classics and Avant-Garde Trendsetters – encapsulates Indian jewellery brands’ inspiring journey of passion, expertise and devotion to the art of jewellery. Whether the occasion is a destination wedding in Jaipur or a romantic dinner in Paris, these jewellers weave sophistication with versatility, and tradition with modernity, as they bring to life natural diamond creations that have been a benchmark in craftsmanship.
Speaking on the collaboration, Richa Singh, Managing Director – Natural Diamond Council, India & Middle East said, “Joining forces with Condé Nast Traveller to reveal The Diamond Standard List and commemorate the achievements of the jewellery industry is an incredible moment. This list is a testament to our love of artistry, beauty and slow fashion and the passion that drives everything classic and avant-garde in the jewellery industry. We hope it will inspire our readers to dream and aspire to more remarkable designs as they celebrate their special moments with exquisite natural diamond jewellery that truly reflects their personality and style statement.”
