Elizabeth Taylor once said "Big girls need big diamonds", and she certainly lived by her motto. Well, today we're gonna take a look at the biggest of them all, the godmother of diamonds. If you've watched "Blood Diamond" starring Leonardo Dicaprio, you probably know how many lived can be tossed aside just to find one of those.
The most expensive necklace in the world is a stunning masterpiece by Mouaward – a 637-carat L’Incomparable diamond necklace created in 2013 which has been named the world’s most expensive necklace by Guinness World Records, as it is valued at a mind-boggling $55 million. The yellow gem is set on 18k gold. This step‐cut diamond is the largest internally flawless diamond ever graded by the Gemmological Institute of America.
Apart from this huge rock, the necklace is decked with 35 round diamonds, 27 pear-shaped diamonds, nine heart-shaped diamonds, five emerald-cut diamonds, five cushion diamonds, four oval diamonds, three Asscher-cut diamonds and two radiant diamonds.
Here is the video that will elevate your respect towards diamonds and especially towards Mouaward for this fine creation. You will definitely see why it deserves to be priced at $55 Million!
The necklace’ centrepiece diamond was found by chance in a pile of mining rubble by a young girl in the Democratic Republic of Congo. One thing is certain, the child who found it in the 1980s will never benefit. Her identity and fate remains a mystery.
