De Beers Diamond Jewellers, the definitive destination for diamond jewellery, celebrates the opening of a new De Beers store at Shanghai’s new mall - IAPM. Located in the Xuhui District, the luxury mall offers a variety of fine jewellery and fashion brands. Shanghai is an epicenter of luxury shopping and the establishment of De Beers here marks the brand’s sixth store in China.
The new 120 square meter space features De Beers’ unique store design concept of glass and light, where clients are invited to discover the natural beauty and timeless mystique of diamonds. De Beers’ most beautiful creations will come to life in this setting, including stunning solitaires, timeless classics and unique High Jewellery creations.
In anticipation of this opening, De Beers unveiled its ‘Moments in Light’ exhibition celebrating talented women. De Beers invited esteemed Chinese artists Cui Xiuwen, Liang Yuanwei, Han Yajuan and Peng Wei, to express the “Moments in Light” of their own lives through their artworks which were displayed at Sinan Mansion, Shanghai in June. Xiang Jing a renowned sculptor and photographer, captured each of these women in unique photos that brought to life the personalities of the artists, which were also on display at the exhibition curated by Liu Chunfeng.
During the opening of the exhibition, distinguished actress Zhang Jingchu showcased a teaser of the first film she has both written and directed as well as performed in: a short film created for De Beers to illuminate her “Moments in Light.” The film will see its official release in October.
