Six diamonds drip down into an abstract assymetrical waterfall. 2 emerald-cut and 4 square cut stones.

I find great elegance in squares, and while they are substantially harder to procure and design with square-cut diamonds, I'm very insistent to make it happen.

The way to construct a square is actually from a circle: Every circle has a center. By connecting four equal points from its radius, we find the square. The square is the spiritual, manifested. Grounding. Complete support and stability. You are held, in the square.

Square shapes are associated with attributes of the number 4: The four seasons, the four cardinal points, the four elements. 

The cubic stone is associated with the idea of completion and perfection- the full realisation of possibilities. 

The squaring of the circle is to make the passage from the earthly to the divine. It is the visible and the invisible. In the Middle Ages, this was a secret knowledge that would give access to the celestial. It brings matter into abstraction. It's a difficult symbolic operation that many civilisations have approached.

In Hinduism, because of their majesty, waterfalls serve as a bathing place for gods and celestial beings who frequent them.
