VOGUE jewellery editor Carol Woolton is putting her expertise to good use by curating a diamond exhibition - Brilliant - which will launch as part of the annual Masterpiece London fair, in celebration of the Queen`s Diamond Jubilee year. Highlights are set to include a black diamond and emerald collar by Karl Lagerfeld and a pair of shoes adorned with diamonds and feathers by Bruno Frisoni for Roger Vivier - titled A Queen Forever and created in collaboration with the East India Company - as well as pieces such as the Diamond Queen light installation and diadem by Asprey and Chris Levine and a striking diamond chandelier by Solange Azagury Partridge.

"Masterpiece London already has the best of antique diamonds on show but this was a way to add contemporary diamond design into the fair," Woolton told us. "Diamonds have something magical about them - it`s hard to define, but you recognise it when you see it. When this magic and ephemeral sparkle is combined with a strong design then I believe something of great power is created."
And it isn`t just jewellery on offer - the exhibition will see diamonds used in a host of new and exciting ways.

"Brilliant will have diamond art works, diamond set pieces for the home, diamond tattooed leather as fashion pieces redefining the way we will wear diamonds and their role in our artistic life," said Woolton. "The incredible designers and fine jewellery houses taking part in the show are giving these billion-year-old fragments from the earth a whole new vision of modernity."
