y e a R . The last

vestiges of summer warmth collide with the early briskness of October air, as the days start to grow shorter. I actually think it’s a romantic time of the year, mostly at the beginning of the season when it is just cold enough to wear a nice light jacket but not too hot where you can pull on a nice pair of boots.

This is also the time of year where people focus more on fashion. Fashion Week events are happening all over

the globe, including in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, where designers are showcasing their work. With the eyes on fashion comes even more of a heightened focus on jewellery, diamonds and watches. They take on even more of a special meaning. The right piece to complement the right outfit can make all the difference.

It could be yellow earrings, with a matching ring, that captures the “feel” of the Fall season. Maybe you

are taking out some of your nice brown leather strap watches to match the belt and boots you are wearing. Or

p u b l i s h e r ’ s l e t t e r __ 0 8

maybe you reach for that nice pair of cufflinks to impress that colleague at the office.

Remember, jewellery is about how it makes you feel. And for me, Fall is a time to feel romantic. That’s why we

went for the cover we did, for this issue. Jewellery starts with a kiss.

Actually, let me re-name the season, and call it “Amber,” because the colours make me feel warm.

Frank Biskupek believes that patience is what defines both Scotch whisky and those who enjoy it. “You have to wait to make your money in life; to find your place in life,” he says. “If you want it all up front, boy are you going to be disappointed when you have it all. You have to experience life in order to know the good parts. If you haven’t had bad parts, how are you going to know what the good parts are?”

Patience, among other qualities, is the main ingredient that goes

into making Scotch a luxury item. Biskupek explains: “The idea of

s p i r i t s __ 3 0

Scotch whisky is that it must sit a minimum of three years in a cask,”

The idea of

The fact that this beverage waits patiently in a fragrant cask for its debut, since most single malts are

12, 15, 16 or 18 years old, says something about the consumer of this fine spirit.

There is a certain class associated with something that you have to wait for and something that is

only available from one source in the world. Scotland is the main producer of Scotch whisky in the world, and the Scottish are extremely proud of it.

Scotch whisky, “is only done in Scotland, because single malts can only be produced in Scotland,”

says Biskupek. “The great climate, the available barley and the great water for whisky,” are the simple

ingredients that contribute to the hearty taste of this fine spirit.

When asked about the etiquette involved in drinking and enjoying Scotch for those wanting to affirm their dedication to the spirit, or even for those on their way to becoming Scotch aficionados, Biskupek has a short and concise list of DOs and DON’Ts: >

Whether it’s been put into a glass decanter or stays in the bottle, it tastes the same.” • Scotch whisky lasts forever. “You can keep your whisky as long as you want. As long as you don’t put it near a radiator or fire. And if your granddad likes to drink it, lock it away!”

The purity of the simple ingredients that go into distilling a bottle of single malt whisky are very similar to the simple details that colour a life of elegance and splendour that no longer costs what it used to. Enjoyed in small quantities at a time, it is the crème de la crème of the drinking culture, and has deeply rooted tradition as its calling card.

“One of the things we must protect is the tradition of

single malt whisky. It’s so much a part of the culture,” Biskupek remarks. It is almost as though Scotch whisky has a character of its own; one with a strong legacy, one that demands respect and hard work; a highly nationalistic, proud and enduring custom. And when done right, just like Christmas morning or a cozy arm chair by a crackling fire, even a promotion or a sports car, this long-standing tradition can bring a great sense of accomplishment and an unrivalled life experience, especially when shared with others.

Frank Biskupek, brand ambassador of “The Glenlivet”

Single Malt at Pernod Ricard, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and moved to Canada in 1981. An LCBO alumnus, he is a prominent figure in the Scottish community in and around Toronto, Ontario and loves to share his passion for and commitment to the culture and ceremony of Scotch whisky. ****

to ensure your jeweller y is protected

W i t h

w i n t e r right around the corner, there’s still time to squeeze in a fun fall getaway.

According to the most recent data available in the Canadian Year Book, more than eight million Canadians take a trip over-

seas every year, with thousands more traveling within Canada.

While excitement for an upcoming vacation can make something like protecting your jewellery seem mundane, it should

be an essential part of any travel plan. T O P I M A G E : P r e c io u s T emptatio n s E a r r i n g s (C h opa r d)

According to a recent survey conducted by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company – provider of Perfect CircleTM Jewelry

Insurance – around 63 percent of people bring their jewellery with them on vacation, and for good reason.

Vacations are a special occasion, and wearing your favourite jewellery can make you look and feel your best. Unfortunate-

ly, nearly 28 percent of these people have also lost a piece while on vacation.

“A fun vacation can be ruined by a loss or damage. Insurance can give you peace of mind at home and while you are away”

says Patrick Drummond, vice president of sales and marketing at Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company.

Whether the piece is a family heirloom or your favourite new purchase, jewellery loss can be devastating. Luckily, there

are steps you can take to keep your jewellery safe before, during and after travel. B E F O R E






While travelers may be very conscious of keeping their jewellery safe and protected once they arrive at their destination, there are many opportunities to lose your valuables while you are en route to your destination.

Before you leave, carefully assess your jewellery needs. Will you be spending most of your time hiking or camping? You

probably won’t need your new diamond tennis bracelet. >

As important as selecting appropriate jewellery for the oc-

casion is to consolidate as much as possible. A strand of pearls that goes with everything is a much safer option than bringing a different necklace for every outfit.

Once you have decided what to bring, write it down. Make

two copies of the list of jewellery you’ll bring with you. Take one copy with you, storing it separately from your jewellery and leave the other at home.

Use the list you brought to make sure you have all of your

pieces before packing up, and the one at home to make sure everything made the return trip with you.

A D e l i c at e D i a m o n d & Precious Gem N e c k l a c e (C h o pa r d)

At the airport, a loss can occur at any time. Keep a close eye

on your carry-on – it is easy to get distracted when checking in or going to the restroom. Don’t be the person who lost their favourite watch or ring because they weren’t keeping an eye on their belongings.

“Never put jewellery in a checked bag,” says Drummond. “The chances of you never seeing your pieces again are much greater once they’re out of your sight.”

When traveling, the safest place to store your jewellery is

on your person. If you are only bringing a small amount, wear



it. Be sure to hide pendants under your shirt and turn rings

As soon as the Frederique Constant watch was presented, Glen Baxter started to loosen up.

As the subject of a photo shoot, you wouldn’t assume that to

be the case. Baxter has spent twenty years covering the fashion industry, next to some of the top photographers of the day, as

12-10-11 3:45 PM

a television journalist. He is currently a host of CTV’s In Fashion and a reporter for Fashion Television Channel.

We are in the living room at his stylish condo in Toronto’s tony King West neighbourhood.

Baxter is dressed impeccably. That’s his brand – he is seemingly a fixture on various “Best Dressed” lists. For the past 15 years Baxter has been dressed head to toe exclusively in the red label HUGO by Hugo Boss.

“I have covered many photo shoots over the years,” he says. “We’d go on set and interview

photographers, models, creative directors, stylists, and we’d do a whole behind-the-scenes segment. Being in front of the lens is much harder for me. I have so much respect for models. People think this is easy, but it’s not.”

Baxter is asked to loosen his tie, and open his shirt a bit, and that’s when the fun starts.

Next he’s unbuttoning the sleeves of his dress shirt, rolling it up, showing off the watch. Baxter doesn’t do “crazy”; this is as wacky as it will get.

“Most people, when they see a picture of themselves, they cringe,” he says. “I am like most people that way. I cringe a lot.” Baxter says he owns a few high-end watches. He’s not into owning a lot, just a few special ones. A man should own the right ones, for the right occasions, he says.

“I have a couple of everyday watches, with metallic bands,” he says. “And I have a dressier

watch that I like to wear with a nice suit.”

He believes it is important for men to really think about the watch they choose to comple-

ment a particular look. “As guys we don’t have too many options as far as fashion accessories go, so watches are key,” he says. “They must complement the look, not ruin it.”

Baxter says he doesn’t dress informally that much.

“I have male friends who have told me they’ve given up,” he says, laughing. “I have a life-

style where I can enjoy the clothes, and the watches, and go out in a great city with friends, and enjoy the lifestyle. It’s all about feeling good about yourself.”

An accomplished photographer, Baxter has traveled extensively throughout Asia, Africa

and the Middle East. His photos have been displayed in solo exhibitions sponsored by Hugo Boss, with 100 per cent of the proceeds benefitting various charities, most recently Right To Play ( ****

Carrick focusing more on style

One can see it when he models the TW Steel watch at a fashion photo

shoot of which he is the subject. “I just like classic kinds of pieces,” he says.

This year, Carrick grabbed one of four spots in the Toronto Interna-

tional Film Festival Rising Star program, an initiative that shines the spotlight on up-and-coming Canadian talent.

“I think it’s a great honour,” he says. “And I think I am quite comfortably the least famous of the four rising stars.”

Carrick just wrapped up filming the lead role in Molly Maxwell, his first feature film. He is also set to star alongside Jeremy Irons in the acclaimed historical television series, The Borgias.

With his natural good looks and laid-back temperament, Carrick

The trendy Gotstyle boutique in downtown Toronto is the perfect set-

ting for the rising star to prep for red carpet outings. Upon arrival, Carrick paired up with Gotstyle’s resident fashion guru, Maxim Efimov, and the two collaborated on a few gala-worthy looks.

“I think, like most actors, I definitely had a stage where I was super into James Dean, Marlon Brando and Montgomery Cliff,” says Carrick. “I really like that older kind of time – like Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson’s looks in the sixties.”

That clearly translates into his final suit selection, an all-navy ensem-

ble of a button-up shirt, dress pants and jacket that brings out his striking blue eyes.

The look is accessorized with an ultra-modern watch from TW Steel.

The CE 4002 David Coulthard Special Edition boasts a precision chrono movement and a masculine titanium coated steel bezel, adding a hint of boldness to Carrick’s wrist.

“I used to care more about clothes when I was younger,” he says. “It’s

funny to me to think that now. But I was very specific about the stuff that

P R O F I L E __ 7 2

I would wear before. Now, not so much.”

Carrick’s simple taste in clothes is clearly evident when he reminisces about his first big purchase as a teen.

“I have this Diesel t-shirt that I bought when I was like, 16 or 15,” he says. “I spent my own money on it and I remember

it was 45 pounds [Carrick’s roots are northeastern England]. My mum was furious that I spent that much on a t-shirt. I still have it to this day and it’s in perfect condition.”

Today, buying a tee for more than it’s worth may be the least of Carrick’s worries.

“I’ve always loved movies but I find being on the red carpet – networking and all that stuff – to be tough,” admits Carrick.

BMW’s new 2013 6 Series Gran Coupe is magic on wheels. A swoosh of a roofline makes it look like a sleek coupe, but rear seat passengers get their own doors.

The four-door coupe is a place where car designers can show their chops. Already mo-

toring around are the lovely Audi A7 and the Mercedes CLS. Now the 6 Series Gran Coupe shows BMW designers have sharp pencils too, a wonderful complement to luxury lifestyle. It’s a gorgeous beast of a car. A long hood slinks down to that all-business BMW front end. New LED headlights that give the car a searing identity at night, flank the kidney grille and a new chrome blade brightens the black louvers low down on the front bumper.

The rear view is even better -- low, wide, with just the hint of an uplift at the trunk lid,

it ties the big Gran Coupe into a neat performance package. At the top of the rear window, t t 3 c h r o n o g r a p h w at c h (o r i s , $ 3 , 5 0 0 )

the third brake light runs in a wide slash, which will be another standout signature of the Gran Coupe at night.

The long wheelbase increases the length over the

2-door coupe by 111 mm, but designers have housed it in a muscular profile.

More doors, more power right? If the Gran Coupe is

squiring four, maybe five adults, then it’s just prudent to add ponies. The twin turbo 4.4 litre V8 650i xDrive, which will be the only version of the Gran Coupe available in Canada, produces 445 horsepower, up 38 hp from the 2012

manually. BMW claims the Gran Coupe will sprint from 0 to 100km/h in a remarkable 4.5 seconds. Fuel consumption is predicted to be an impressive 8.6 l/100km in combined driving. Brake energy regeneration and auto start-stop, which cuts engine power when idling, contributes to fuel efficiency ratings.

Each new BMW showcases advanced technology features, and the Gran

and pedestrian detection are technologies that impressed me when I tested the 650i Cabriolet earlier this year. The heads-up display with 3D graphics makes following navigation maps easier and less distracting from driving functions.

In press previews of the Gran Coupe, journalists praised the luxurious interior, and driver-oriented cockpit. Backseat

room was pretty palatial for those under NBA regulation sizes.

These are exciting times in car production, more power but better fuel consumption, bigger cars that drive like smaller

cars, luxury paired with sportiness. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, starting at $99,800, steps right in to the fray with its characteristic swagger. ****

curate or exact measurement.” It also refers to a precision tool or something “made so as to vary minimally from a set standard,” in other words, precision components. Both definitions can be aptly applied to Bulova’s Precision Chronograph watch, which will debut in the United States, Canada and Europe in October 2012. Tadashi Nakamura, creative director at Bulova for the last three years, says, “architectural designs were my thoughts and inspiration behind designing the Precision Chronograph.” Nakamura studied at Tokyo University of Art and Design, specializing in industrial design before solidifying his place among top

Precision is most commonly defined as, “used or intended for ac-

watchmakers. Prior to joining the Bulova family, Nakamura was design manager for Citizen Japan for several years, laying claim to many OEM brands for Europe and Japan.





Nakamura also headed the design team for Paul Smith watches marketed in Japan. It was during those years that Nakamura honed his skills and passion for detail in the watch-making business, thus bringing the Chronograph to life.

“We always begin with rough sketches by hand, as I

do with all my designs,” says Nakamura. “Then I begin to design the features, ultimately with a 2D CGI (twodimensional computer generated image, which is created

with a continuously sweeping second hand that beats 16 times per second, compared to other standard quartz watches that beat only one time per second. Proud of their proprietary expertise, the Precisionist “P” logo is on the tail of every second hand,” says Chan. The precision technology in this watch addresses temperature changes and vibration frequency, two important factors that can affect accuracy in quartz watches. “This watch has a multi-layered dial and the surface quality is excellent,” says Nakamura when referring to the elements that also contribute to making the Precisionist Chronograph different from other timepieces. “There’s a bracelet, case and layered dial that other watches do not have.” Chan adds that, “the Champlain and Longwood bracelets are constructed by five individually milled links of various profiles.

This gives a very clean line to each link on one hand, while having separate links will provide a crisp aesthetic appeal.”

When not perfecting his watch skills, Nakamura enjoys surfing, scuba diving and beach activities. “It takes 10 minutes to walk to the beach, which I do often,” says the creative designer who has his home in Kanagawa, right outside of Tokyo. “It’s some of nature’s beauty that gives me my inspirations for rough sketches. I put those life inspirations into watch-making and the process itself. It’s a definite concept. For example, the orbit of the stars in the night sky embodies the beautiful and precise stream of time.” It seems that Nakamura has breathed life into the Bulova line of watches with the Precisionist and has redefined the watch industry with a new sense of dynamism and excitement. Over 50 years ago, the company introduced its Accutron product line which, at the time, was the most comprehensive and revolutionary watch of its era. Today, Nakamura says the Precisionist watch has given Bulova a superior presence. “It has balance, quality and gives one the pleasure of ownership. I’d describe this specific watch as high spec, high-quality and good design.” ****

With that comes competitive advantage: keep up or you will fall behind. We like to race, to compete, and we love to win.

This passion for speed explains our collective fascination and love affair with automobiles and automotive racing. That’s

probably because our lives are so intertwined with cars. That includes our shared history of coveting them (at least the luxury ones) and riding in them. We love to drive fast, and we like to watch others drive even faster. Professional racing circuits around the world continue to grow in popularity.

For early aviators, a precise and functional timepiece was essential

equipment to aid navigation, gauge distance and calculate fuel consumption. The wristwatch relieved Dumont from the frustration of removing his hands from the airplane controls to check his pocket watch. Commander Richard Byrd relied on an A. Wittnauer Company (now Bulova) for the first flight over the North Pole in 1926. Earlier, Wittnauer had seized on aviation to demonstrate the resilience of the world’s first shockproof watch by hurling timepieces out of airplanes.

It is not clear which brand Charles Lindbergh wore on his historic May

1927 solo flight across the Atlantic; Ardé Bulova would pay tribute to the

ever maga

airman with a cheque for $1,000 and a Bulova Lone Eagle wristwatch.

But ‘Lucky Lindy’ would give up his hard-earned secrets for a pilot’s navigation watch in a detailed letter to rival Longines upon his return from Paris.

12-10-11 4:08 PM

Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic,

insisted on an Omega watch and clocks in the instrument panel of her single-engine Lockheed Vega 5B. The Omega Speedmaster is the only watch to have landed on the moon. The wristwatch was no longer an essential instrument in the flight deck - or so it was thought. In 1970, the Speedmaster was used to manually time the precise engine boost needed for the crippled Apollo 13 space module to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere.

On occasion, the evolution of aeronautical and watch craftsmanship

happened in reverse. Abraham-Louis Breguet founded his watch company in Paris in 1775. In 1909, his great-great grandson would build his first fixed wing aircraft and go on to design and build a World War I reconnaissance aircraft and day bombers for the French air force. Aviation is a fast, romantic and technology-driven industry with the precision, lifestyle and thundering thrills that luxury watch brands want to be associated with. Cartier still has a line of Santos Dumontinspired watches and sunglasses.

Hamilton, the first watch worn for the inaugural US airmail service

between Washington and New York, and in the 1930s the official watch of pioneer legends such as TWA and United, is the official timekeeper at many international air events. The largest is the AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, attracting over 10,000 aircraft and 500,000 AMELIA EARHART (av iati o n p i o n eer a n d a u th o r )

aviation enthusiasts from around the world. Hamilton also has an association with several of the world’s most prestigious formation teams, including Canada’s Snowbirds.

Still, no watchmaker has so tightly strapped its brand to aeronau-

tics than Breitling. The Swiss manufacturer’s aviation roots may not stretch as far back as some, but they are planted as deep. In the early 1930s, Breitling produced onboard chronographs that would equip the cockpits of famous World War II fighters, including airplanes flown by the Royal Air Force. In tribute, a full-sized RAF Spitfire is anchored to the rooftop of Breitling’s headquarters in Grenchen, Switzerland.

Every year, Breitling thrills crowds at aviation shows and other

sporting events with aerobatics, wing walkers and the world’s largest professional civilian jet formation team.

The Breitling fleet hits all the glory marks of aviation from the barn-

storming 30s to the golden age of air travel with one of the world’s last airworthy Lockheed Super Constellations, the grand lady of the skies during the 1940s and 50s.

Breitling refuses to put a price tag on its aero-activities, but the

message is clear: it is one thing to showcase a watch in front of an aviation backdrop. To fly the brand, a timepiece belongs in the cockpit. ****

d a y , an extraordinary and mysterious gem, a stunning

24.78-carat pink diamond, became the most valuable jewel in the world, reaching the staggering sum of 45.5 million Swiss Francs ($45.2 million CDN) - an exhilarating and unprecedented sale soon to become the envy of any reputable jewellery house.

Beyond its splendid pink hue and its exceptional cut and purity, this magnificent

diamond owes its rarity and value to its chemical properties: a rare Type IIA which make up less than two per cent of existing cut diamonds, the purest form of all crystal gems presenting a most exceptional optical clarity.

This superb gem left its 60 years of secrecy to become a historical landmark. Its new

owner, Sir Laurence Graff proudly admitted: “It is the most fabulous diamond I’ve seen in my career and I’m delighted to have bought it.” In just a few seconds, this unforeseen gem made history, and was soon renamed the Graff Pink.

More and more clients are turning to h i g h- qua l i t y d i a m on d s , f i n e-colou r e d g e mston e s , a n d a l s o v i n tag e j e w e l s a s a n a lt e r nat e b u t v e ry s e c u r e fo r m o f


Lineage symbols, family treasures, and faithful witnesses of passionate liaisons and historic

episodes, these notorious jewels sporadically make their appearances for special celebrations or important events, outliving their successive owners from one generation to the next.

Possessing any one of these unique pieces has become an absolute obsession in the minds of

most indulgent collectors such as Graff, leading to a growing demand for celebrity jewellery collections, as well as for exceptional gems.

Are they guided by passion or vision? Whatever their underlying motive might be, this trend is

as present as ever.

Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s Head of Jewellery in New York, said: “More and more clients are turn-

ing toward high-quality diamonds, fine-coloured gemstones, and also vintage jewels as an alternate but very secure form of investment.”

Said Francois Curiel, International Jewellery Director and President of Christies Asia: “It’s part

of a general movement where, at the moment, works of art and jewellery attract a lot of customers. It’s no longer the best-kept secret. Financial markets are not very attractive at the moment. If you give money to your bank they give you one percent a year, if that. The fact that the art market, over the past five to 10 years, performed extremely well — not only in jewellery, but in Impressionist and modern art as well as post-war and contemporary — also gives new buyers courage to enter the market. I think it is mostly the lack of confidence in the monetary system which pushes people to works of art and jewellery.”

Investors and collectors realize the long-term stability that comes with these investments.

“A fine diamond or an exceptional colour gem not only retains its value but will appreciate over time, even through crisis periods such as 2009,” says Henri Barguirdjian, Graff President and CEO for the Americas.

As an investment, jewels with iconic signatures such as Cartier and Van Cleef remain the most

appealing. A bracelet circa 1930 made by one of these reputable houses, set with sapphires, rubies, onyx and diamonds, doubled its estimate to reach a staggering $338,500 USD at auction.

In a similar fashion, a diamond Cartier bracelet circa 1952, adorned with 62 carats of rubies,

recently went for $590,000 USD, more than double its original estimate.

Another successful sale was that very famous pearl necklace acquired by Calvin Klein for his

wife Kelly, which would certainly not have been as attractive to him, had it not once belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. >

12-10-11 4:35 PM

When referring to the 2011 Elizabeth Taylor Estate sale,

Francois Curiel elaborates: “Jewels attract passionate people. But had the collection of Elizabeth Taylor not belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, we certainly wouldn’t have sold 25,000

M E A N I N G F U L J E W E L L E R Y __ 8 6

tickets at $30 a piece for people to come to the exhibition, and we certainly would not have had 39,000 people around the world look at the exhibition. Her name drew the crowd.

“There are quite interesting statistics [about the jewellery market]. The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond was purchased by Richard Burton for her for $300,000. That, corrected for inflation, comes to $1.95 million. We sold it for $8.8 million. There are many examples like

Nouveau flair have taken over the minimalist rave: chandelier pendants, lace designs, brooches and hair adornments, all clearly reminiscent of 18th- and 19th-century trends.

When spending significant sums on jewellery, customers

are also increasingly willing to get a sense of purpose - not only value for their money. They also expect some type of emotional resonance.

Beauty and design are no longer sufficient; important

jewels need to reflect their singularity and the owner’s personality as well.

As explained by Stanislas de Quercize, President and global CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels (soon to be head of Cartier worldwide): “People are buying with their hearts and their brains.”

Objects with a soul will always prevail over less signifi-

cant possessions. A jewel should provide the same satisfaction as the acquisition of a masterpiece; when a collector desires an objet d’art, or feels inclined to possess his/her own relic of the past, by obtaining it, they become an active part of its history.

In a time of unpredictable financial markets and eco-

nomic uncertainty, a short-term demand for cash has significantly advanced estate jewellery sales, and boosted private collection auction venues.

A larger scope of consumers can now access the enchant-

ment of an Art Nouveau jewel or the timeless modernism of an Art Deco design, either through magnificent signature pieces, or more anonymous pieces but just as gracious and

Israel’s history is never far or forgotten; every inch of the city holds a piece of its past. Case in point is Israel’s first train station in the once tired looking district of Hata Chana, which has now been transformed into a swanky area to eat and shop. A large freight car and some rail tracks stand like sculptures, front and centre, among Israeli designer boutiques, and the Soho neighbourhood is a knockout place for fashion, filled with many clothing stores and jewellery designer shops. A good example of the eye candy featured in this area is at Hella Ganon’s, which takes computer-assisted gold jewellery design to a whole new level. >

The new addition to the Tel Aviv Art Museum is a perfect example of the high quality that comes with new architecture.

Security was present when I visited the Boursa, the renowned Israel Diamond Centre, in Ramat Gan. It’s easier to get into Fort Knox.

Opened in 1986, the Boursa is considered one of the largest diamond

exchanges in the world, although India is now a close second after learning the craft from the Israelis. In this major complex - a village within a village - is the 240-metre Moshe Avi Tower - the “Golden Gate,” where a handshake seals the deal.

Luckily, I have an acquaintance who is a member. Connections are

important. With my passport in hand, I go through my first security check. I am photographed for a must-have visitor’s tag and my fin-

gerprints are taken - now forever on their computers. Here you can purchase loose or set diamond items from the purest white to fancy coloured; round diamonds are still the most popular sellers. This is where traditional designs compete with the most innovative, unique creations.

Cutting, finishing and polishing is handled in a very secured much

smaller, less flashy set of buildings.

S c h o o l

o f

r o c k s

Naturally, a lesson with one of the super mavens in the Boursa centered around the four Cs (cut, clarity, carat and colour), then about discussions as to why one diamond sparkles more than another. Faceting is referred to as “hearts and arrows.” Through intricate and precise facets, a perfectly cut stone shines brighter than a lower grade stone. The light enters the top (or table) then reflects it from one side to the other and exits from the top again.

Proportions and symmetry establish brilliance. Cut captures the light. Colour

is a matter of choice, from pure, colourless white (the most valuable and costly) to light yellow, cognac, brown black, pink, blue, green and rare red. As carat size increases, so does the price tag. As for clarity, this means the absence of flaws, either on the surface or inside, and often can only be seen with a jeweller’s loupe. However, most diamonds contain inclusion such as pits, chips, cracks, air bubbles, feathering and non-diamond minerals. M u s e u m

With my head spinning, I am overjoyed to see the nearby Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum, where there’s a short film explaining where diamonds come from. There are a few rooms filled with well-secured, actual pieces on display and some that are replicas of the largest and most rare jewellery in the world.

In a country with only 65 years under its belt, Tel Aviv’s youthful ode to the

diamond culture, through its Boursa, museum and rich culture, is sure to keep
