Yellow Diamond 10th anniversary
Happy Anniversary, Yellow Diamond! Donatella Versace’s beloved floral fragrance is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
“What I miss most about Gianni is his laugh,” says Donatella Versace reminiscing about her late brother, the renowned Italian fashion designer. She says the yellow diamond ring he presented to her remains the most special gift she’s ever received. “The best advice he ever gave me was to ‘be true to yourself’.” She said his life inspired her.
Donatella’s ring is a yellow-and-pink diamond ring from Fred Leighton. It’s a multi-faceted diamond with a vibrant yellow hue that dazzles in the light. The diamond sits on a gold and diamond encrusted base crafted in an antique style. “Gianni taught me to have an appreciation of the craftsmanship of classic pieces,” she told InStyle magazine. “Modern jewelry rarely has the same kind of drama. The best thing about jewelry is that it never wears out – unlike some other loves. You can treasure it forever.”
As an homage to the love for her brother and the special gift he gave her, Donatella designed the Yellow Diamond fragrance bottle. Inside, she blended her favourite flowers along with bright Italian citrus and soft woods. Gianni would definitely have approved.
