The move from banking, then the connection between cranio-sacral therapy and diamonds was considered and intuitive. Cranio-sacral therapy is a gentle hands-on approach that integrates mind and emotions into the body. Designing jewellery calls on the same subtlety, vision and insight. Both involve bringing the core essence into expression. This connection is key to Yves' approach to life.
Years on, Yves has become an expert on natural fancy colour diamonds. His continuing passion and understanding of the stones ranks him as an influential player in this specialist arena. In the same way that it takes years for a perfumer to develop a 'nose', only time and experience can develop the 'eye' for coloured diamonds. In Yves words, "The more you are exposed to different colour diamonds the more you can see the nuances and make comparisons".
