More than two years elapsed from the initial idea to the development and finally the realization of these unique pieces of jewelry. During this period, Anja Heiden never stopped pressing ahead with the development of the Splendora BY KIM solitaire. In the process she developed a very personal relationship with the Splendora collection, especially the ear studs. “I love them because they have an unusual setting, and of course because I helped to develop them,” she says by way of explaining her recommendation.
The innovative cut of the sparkling solitaires was a new and exclusive aspect of the development of this collection. This was the first time the Wempe Cut, which has 137 facets, was used. The implementation was preceded by an intensive development phase. The aim was to develop a round cut that would have at least the same diameter as a brilliant-cut diamond. And the goal was clearly defined: the development of a faceting that reflects the largest possible amount of incident light across the surface of the diamond.
