Known as the King of Black Diamonds, Fawaz Gruosi changed the world of jewellery when he founded De Grisogono jewels. Shocking the industry with his bold, ornate designs and black diamonds, some didn’t take him seriously.
Today, his one-of-a-kind designs adorn A-list celebrities and the super rich; selling single pieces in the tens of millions. But Mr Gruosi doesn’t let it get to his head. He considers himself «extremely» lucky for his success, treats his employees like family, and lives life for pleasure.
HelloMonaco caught up with Mr Gruosi at the De Grisogono 25th anniversary party to learn more about his humble beginnings at a jewellery shop in Florence and how he became the most prestigious and exclusive jewellery designer in the world.
