L’Incomparable, made by the famous luxury jeweler Mouawad features a yellow, internally flawless, egg shaped diamond weighing 407 carrots. The diamond is suspended by a rose gold setting that is studded with 90 white diamonds weighing nearly 230 carats.
The piece is presented in a jewelry show in Singapore, which reflects not only the level of interest the Asian market is showing in such precious artifacts, but also the future potential of jewelry in the Asian market. The show will put European and American pieces on the stands worth collectively over $200 million.
Filippo Melchionni, the man in charge of guarding all the jewelry at the show is taking no chances at all; security includes armed guards, plainclothes supervisors, cameras, motion detectors and bullet-proof display cases.
The price tag on the giant diamond necklace is $55 million.
