Based in Melbourne, Jill is interested in the ways desire has inspired humans, driven them to create and motivated them to adorn. Having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Metals and Jewellery) at Monash University, she examines how the quality of colour and sensation of tactility dictates our desire and attraction in relation to jewellery. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
These two diamonds – known as Cullinan III and IV, or the Third and Fourth Stars of Africa, or “Granny’s Chips” are the most famous Cullinan chippings. Cullinan III is a pear-shaped 94.4 carat diamond and is suspended from Cullinan IV, a square-cut 63.6 carat diamond, in the famous silver Cullinan Brooch setting.
