To see the sparkle, brilliance and perfection of these diamonds is to understand the white fire, life and brilliance in real, visual terms—they are, after all, small wonders, intensely precious objects from the depths of the earth. And our new diamond necklace is a masterpiece of classic beauty, as well as being an heirloom piece and, for our Members, an incredibly good investment at the Club price. The retail value is at least £16,500—and your price is just over £7,000! If ever you were thinking of buying a diamond necklace, now is the time!
As to design, a new diamond necklace must capture and hold its own moment in time—and this stunning diamond necklace does this to perfection, using graduation of the stones to create an eternally feminine, personal style. The design enhances the size and radiance of the diamonds at the front of the necklace—the focus of attention—drawing the energy and sparkle of the diamond to its wearer.
In terms of colour, the aim is to be as near colourless as possible so that the white fire is truly intense. In many diamond necklaces the jeweller settles for a lower grade of diamond, or smaller diamonds. In this necklace the opposite is the case. The diamond colour is F, one of the top three ‘collection colours’ and only two grades away from the ultimate (there are 26 grades in all!). In terms of clarity, again so that nothing interrupts that flashing light, the diamonds in our necklace are graded VS, flawless to the eye, which again ranks them at the top end of the scale. Not only this, but there are only 106 diamonds in the necklace, ranging from the smallest (.05 carats) at the back, to the largest stones at .19 carats. Sometimes a 5-carat necklace can be set with 170 to 180 diamonds—which would therefore be smaller, and very much less valuable, than the necklace you see here.
The full 5 carats of natural diamonds were individually chosen for their clarity and superlative beauty, and expertly prong set by hand in 18ct white gold, the result having a lovely fluidity—another sign of a high quality, well-set necklace.
