Rosace De Paris
Within the heart of Paris stands the historically intriguing Notre Dame Cathedral. Inspiring thousands of people every year, the foundation was first laid by Bishop Maurice de Sully and King Louise IX in the early 12th century. Completed 200 years later, this magnificent church has weathered monarchies, revolutions, civil unrest and multiple restorations. And within this beauty sits the Rosace stained glass window. As the light shines through this masterpiece, a lustrous rainbow of colour beams down in a blaze of brilliance transforming the gothic darkness into a kaleidoscope of divinity.
Awed by the evocative beauty and spectacular dance of sunglow through the Rosace, artisans Simon Levi and Avraham Namdar took inspiration and created the extraordinary Brilliant Rose diamond in 1996.
