Lorenz Bšumer, a charismatic Parisian jeweler known for creating unusual designs with deeply colored stones was chosen to create the tiara for the marriage of SAS Prince Albert of Monaco to CharlŤne Whittstock in 2010. He has used three-dimensional digital technology to create geometric shapes interspersed with bright gemstones; microporous metal that absorbs scent to create a scarab brooch that, when filled with perfume, emits fragrance when the wings are opened; lasers to engrave diamonds with intricate script sayings and images-etchings so small a magnifying glass is needed to see them-whether they are poems or images of the Virgin Mary; and meteorites, which he dips in acid to reveal naturally occurring patterns in the gray rock and then sets with diamonds. This lavishly illustrated book sheds light on these stunning creations and the man behind them.
