Black diamond



Titanium, anodised titanium, black diamond 0.5 ct.

30 x 30 x 10 mm


Friedrich Becker created a perfect brooch in 1964 through the reduction to the absolute minimum, a long knife edge profile holding a .75 carat diamond with a 2 point setting. It is not possible to reduce any of its elements even further. My brooch is a homage to this work, applying the 2 point setting in one of my 30x30 mm brooch frames from the early 70s, updating my the original materials to anodised titanium and a black diamond. - Johannes Kuhnen
