A masterpiece 7 years in the making
If Sunday night’s Golden Globes broadcast was any indication as to what we can expect from red carpet events this year, then the necklace has the advantage over its bejeweled counterparts. From Emma Stone’s perfectly chosen vintage Tiffany & Co. sensation to Sienna Miller’s simple strand of Tiffany pearls (that she somehow made look anything but simple—as is her way) to even Michelle William’s poorly received ol’ velvet-ribbon-in-a-bow, the necklace game was strong. Sure, there were quite a few (very) bare cleaves that really looked like they could have used a Y-shape drop—even a simple, dainty one!—but when it comes to red carpets, you learn to pick your battles, am I right? So for future events, I propose this miracle on ice: a platinum collar necklace, painstakingly handcrafted by the masters at David Mor. The piece took seven years to make, between finding the perfect match in pear-shape stones, recutting stones to make the proportions just right, and hand-writing to make sure that it sits just right. It’s a journey that paid off because, well, look. I believe we have an award contender on our hands, what say you?
Handcrafted necklace in platinum with 60.09 cts. t.w. fancy intense yellow pear-shape diamonds, 33.42 cts. t.w. D-color pear-shape diamonds, and 49.32 cts. t.w. D-color marquise-cut diamonds, $3,025,000
