Jeweller sponsors Chelsea Flower Show’s most expensive ever garden.
Jewels valued at £20 million will adorn the most expensive garden ever created at Chelsea Flower Show this year.
Bond Street jeweller Leviev is creating the Ace of Diamonds garden, which will feature a selection of fine jewellery including the Blue Diamond Flower Ring, a blue flawless diamond set amid eight pear-shaped diamond petals, valued at £3.2 million.
The showpiece is being created by gardener to the stars David Domoney, who is well known for his innovative designs at Chelsea.
“We want to show how jewellery has been inspired by plants throughout history, such as the use of the thistle in Celtic designs. Many varieties of plants and flowers have been named after jewels and gems,” explained Domoney.
His garden last at the 2009 Chelsea Flower Show included piranhas and deconstructed motorbikes in his controversial Ace of Spades garden.
“David always seeks to bring an extra thrill to his gardens,” said Bob Sweet, director of the Chelsea Flower Show.
Leviev opened its first store on London’s Bond Street in 2006 with a mission to bring the world’s most stunning diamonds to customers. It has since opened stores in New York, Moscow and Dubai.
