Les Ardentes is Louis Vuitton’s most luxurious fine jewelry collection that features the patented flower-cut diamonds, a special cut that mirrors the House’s iconic monogram pattern. The cut has predominated the radiance of both the traditional Princess Cut and the Brilliant Cut by having between 61 and 77 facets compared to the latter’s 57-64 and 58-70. The Vuitton diamond cuts is 6 carats, grade D (Colorless), and has IF clarity (Internally Flawless). These diamonds are gathered together and were cast into platinum to create a one-of-a-kind collection which consists of a ring, a bracelet, earrings, and a necklace designed all of which were designed by Madame Anne Cabarbaye.
