Renaissance Collection

Piccadilly Renaissance Classic

The Piccadilly Collection is shaped by John Nash’s great circular junction, Piccadilly Circus, the epicentre of London, since it was built in 1819. It also connected Nash’s dramatic vision, the height of modern fashion, with Piccadilly itself, the bastion of traditional style.

This concept of an elegant connection between new and old lies at the heart of the Backes & Strauss Piccadilly Collection.

Backes & Strauss
Ideal Cut Diamonds

Every round, brilliant diamond used at Backes & Strauss is an Ideal Cut Diamond, designed to emanate optimum fire and brilliance. The perfect symmetry and proportions of an Ideal Cut diamond ensure that the light entering the stone refracts internally from 57 precisely placed facets and travels out through the top of the table, creating a mesmerising sparkle.

We work with only the highest specification diamonds. All Ideal Cut diamonds used at Backes & Strauss are of D, E or F colour and internally flawless with only a very, very slight inclusion.
