An exceptionally rare pink diamond of 18.96-carat fetched 50.3 million Swiss francs (about R718m) at auction in Geneva, Switzerland recently, setting a new per-carat record for a stone of its kind. The diamond was discovered in a South African mine around a century ago. It was probably cut in the 1920s and has not been altered since. The Pink Legacy, which once belonged to the Oppenheimer family who for decades ran the De Beers diamond-mining company, was snapped up by American luxury brand Harry Winston, part of the Swiss Swatch group.

Azza Fahmy, a true local pride and design aficionado, has just taken a creative trip to the enigmatic Nubia. Through utilising her eye for luxury and details, the designer turned the touristic destination into a stunning eight-piece hand-crafted collection, which could be described as a true ambassador. Inspired by the colourful architecture of Nubian houses, as well as Hassan Fathy’s old Nubia’s extensive photographic archives, this fabulous collection depicts miniature sculptural renderings which capture the smallest details seen in Nubia’s domes and artistic motifs. The wearable city is encrusted with champagne diamonds and semi-precious stones, including Turquoise and Aquamarine. Consisting of rings, earrings and necklaces, this contemporary artistic collection reveals Fahmy’s personal connection to this historical city in the south of Egypt, and echoes her successful design approach of translating cultural and historic international references to contemporary jewellery.

Mercedes-Benz is introducing a new form of EQ, for electric intelligence, or how well our cars prepare us for the future. That will be the branding for a new range of vehicles being developed by the world’s leading luxury German carmaker, as it aims to drive automotive technology beyond connected and self-driving cars. The Concept EQA, a compact, sporty electric car that is expected to have a range of 400km on one charge. It has one electric motor on the front axle and one at the rear, allowing for greater flexibility in driving settings. More important, though, it will have zero carbon emissions and is part of Mercedes-Benz’s push into the electric car market. Selvin Govender, marketing director of Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa, points out that the new technology is still evolving. “The Mercedes-Benz EQ brand and technology encapsulates all the electric know-how of Mercedes-Benz cars,” he says. “By 2022, Mercedes-Benz will offer more than 10 purely electrically driven vehicles in every production series.” . . .
