Lugano Diamonds is once again honored to have been a sponsor of the thrilling Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). Lugano Diamonds has always enjoyed the parallels between this exciting sport and the exacting craft of fine jewelry design. Show jumping requires exceptional precision and hand-eye coordination, as do our own artisans. We continue to participate in this exquisite sport and have dedicated an entire jewelry collection to the majestic beauty of horses.
