The Backes & Strauss Queen of Hearts collection, with its deliciously slim cases, has had one new poetic timepiece added to the collection: Queen of Hearts. The majesty of this bejewelled timepiece resides in the 36 heart-shaped diamonds, which flagrantly express romance and glamour via a jewellery-set bezel, allowing the gemstones to be the dazzling protagonists.
The white mother-of-pearl dial is set with 70 round brilliant diamonds and 4 ruby hearts to every quarter of the hour. The interlocking hearts on the dial further pay homage to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s undying love, reminiscent of the iconic interlocking hearts from our feminine Victoria collection.
The craftsmanship involved in making these pieces requires the expertise of an experienced master craftsman, polishing these heart-shaped gemstones to identical sizes and shapes; a true labour of love.
