INSPIRED BY ONE OF THE MOST ARTICULATED VALUES OF GREEK HISTORY AND CULTURE, THE ARETE SOLITAIRE IS THE REALISATION OF LOVE IN DESIGN.
Awakened by the highest result of love, the desire to make eternal what can only exist here on Earth, the Arete represents the quest to say what can never be expressed in words alone through design.
Forged from platinum, utilising techniques perfected since 1853, each Arete is entirely hand made. Sitting proud and pronounced in the gentle glitter of its diamond collar, this refined six-claw setting lets light flood the Diamond. Floating on the skin atop our sharpest knife-edge, the Diamond sparkles for your love’s eyes only.
In keeping with its name, the Arete is a collection of D colour VVS1 clarity GIA certified Diamonds, hand selected from Hardy Brothers private collection.
Elusive and captivating, the D colour Diamond is defined by rarity, virtue and peerless beauty. Recognised as the highest colour grade of Diamonds, the absence of colour emits the brightest, whitest glow.
Sometimes the heart sees what's invisible to the eye. – Tennyson
Arete ultimately translates and is interchangeable with excellence. Intertwined with notions of the fulfilment of purpose and the pursuit of the highest echelons of performance, it encapsulates Hardy Brother's artisan's pursuit of perfection and realisation of vision.
Telling a 1 billion-year-old story of origin, each Arete diamond is GIA certified, traced from the Earth to the jeweller to the lover. An Arete diamond shines light from within with the same remote, untouched beauty of the first evening star.
