World's most expensive necklace to go on display at Ngee Ann City
The world's most expensive necklace - worth a whopping US$55 million (S$69 million) and embedded with 1,044 carats of diamonds - will be making its first Asian stop in Singapore next month.
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 here is part of the upcoming 11th Singapore JewelFest from Oct 11 to 20, which will showcase a combined US$250 million in jewellery - double that of last year's edition.
