Her Majesty sparkles

To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Chris Levine and Asprey have created a new work based on his celebrated portraiture of the Queen.

Levine’s original art work was commissioned by The Jersey Heritage Trust in 2004. Now 1000 beautiful white cut diamonds have been set in platinum by Asprey craftsmen and have been overlaid onto the original. The result is a three dimensional image of The Queen, crowned with 1000 white diamonds, 25 freshwater pearls and a natural intense yellow round diamond. It is a truly stunning work of art.


As I admired this new piece, looking at it from different angles, Her Majesty’s eyes seemed to follow me around the room - an effect created by the hologram. It almost felt as if she were admiring me back (I wish!). It’s astounding how lifelike the picture is: with all the movement, I was half expecting HMH to say “Boo”. This new work is beautiful and should be seen by all.

‘The Diamond Queen’ is on display at Asprey, 167 New Bond Street until 5 July.
