THE world’s most expensive necklace – worth a whopping US$55mil (RM177mil) and embedded with 1,044 carats of diamonds – will be making its first Asian stop in Singapore.
Aptly named the L’Incomparable and created by international jeweller Mouawad, the necklace earned a Guinness World Record in January for being “the most valuable”. It will be displayed from Oct 11 to 15 at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza as part of a global tour targeted at potential buyers.
Studded with 91 diamonds, the necklace’s crown jewel is a deep brownish yellow centrepiece that is said to be “the world’s largest internally flawless diamond” weighing 407.48 carats and is set in 18K rose gold.
The display is part of the upcoming 11th Singapore JewelFest from Oct 11 to Oct 20, which will showcase a combined US$250mil (RM805mil) in jewellery – double that of last year’s edition.
L’Incomparable was brought in to celebrate Mouawad’s opening of its second boutique in Singapore later this year, and in recognition of the city-state’s reputation as a top shopping destination, said JewelFest festival director Angela Loh-Bem. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
