Bonhams Offers $20 Million Mughal Mirror Diamond Necklace

Bonhams is offering a 17th century Mughal Mirror Diamond necklace worth $20 million for private sale.
The necklace features five pendant diamonds with emerald drops. The central stone weighs 28 cts. and is the largest table-cut diamond known. The five surrounding stones—weighing 96 cts. collectively—comprise the largest known matching set of table-cut diamonds from the 17th century. It is believed that the jewel once belonged to a Mughal emperor.
“We are honored to offer the Mughal Mirror Diamond necklace for private sale,” Matthew Girling, Bonhams CEO and international head of jewelry, said in a statement. “Having worked in the jewelry business for over 30 years, I have rarely come across such a masterpiece in terms of craftsmanship and survival.”
