The World of Diamonds Group, one of the world’s largest privately held diamond corporations, will unveil “The Jane Seymour,” a platinum ring plated with rose gold set with a rare 2.08-carat cushion-cut fancy vivid blue diamond. The jewel has been named after the internationally renowned British-American star and will be presented April 25 during a private dinner party honoring her at CÉ LA VI Singapore.
Seymour will wear the ring at the event and then the jewel will become part of the World Diamond Group's private collection.
From the mining of the diamond in Russia, to the crafting of the jewel in Geneva, all of the work was done by the international diamond company.
Blue diamonds of this size and saturation are among the rarest and most sought after gems in the world, commanding extremely high prices at auctions the past few years. However, World of Diamonds Group claims this ring is priceless due to its association with the multitalented actress, producer, philanthropist, painter and businesswoman. The jewel is accompanied by a handcrafted leather “treasure chest.”
“The invitation to behold this creation would rather you not compare The Jane Seymour to anything else in the high jewelry world,” said Karan Tilani, director of World Of Diamonds Group. “It is a celebratory treat, more comparable to a mega-yacht or a ticket to the moon.”

Seymour is in Singapore to star in the British Theatre Playhouse’s production of “The Vortex” by Noel Coward, at Jubilee Hall Theatre inside Raffles Hotel, Singapore. As a key supporter of the play, World of Diamonds Group will host a VIP showing on April 29, followed by the “Art For Charity” gala at Raffles. The event is titled “Great Gatsby, Red Carpet Glamour,” and guests include Singapore President Tony Tan and his wife, Mary Tan, the EU Ambassador to Singapore, Michael Pulch, and the British High Commissioner Scott Wightman.
