Boucheron Necklace – Christie’s 2013 Magnificent Jewels Auction

Lot-1655-AN-EXCEPTIONAL-EMERALD-AND-DIAMOND-NECKLACE-
Selling in the original grey suede Boucheron case, this platinum and 18k yellow gold GIA certified Boucheron necklace measures 39.5cm long. Mounted with a row of very angular graduating European-cut diamonds vertically interspersed with prong-set baguette diamonds, this spectacular necklace boasts a hinged European-cut diamond suspended from each of eight centrally aligned baguette diamonds. Supporting three large tear-drop cabochon emeralds, the three largest European-cut diamonds are rear-mounted with horizontal jump-rings, through which oxidized white gold bales are secured, bezel-set with an assortment of accentuating European-cut diamonds.

In stark contrast, four smaller double 18k yellow gold prong-set cabochon emeralds are attached to pairs of supporting European-cut diamonds by means of discreet jump-rings. A hidden sugarloaf emerald clasp completes this memorable fringe necklace mounted with approximately 105cts of sizable superbly matched flanking Colombian emeralds of ‘excellent’ purity, rarely witnessed in beryl. Commonly filled with a colorless substance to enhance emerald clarity, GIA was surprised to find none evident in the larger and most impressive emerald, covered in the Swiss GIA report number 66682 dated 11th February 2013. This necklace is being offered on 28th May 2013 by Christies in Hong Kong.
