(Worldkings) Top 100 treasures of the world – P10. L'Incomparable diamond necklace

18-04-2019

(Worldkings.org) - Known as L’Incomparable, this necklace created by Lebanese jeweller Mouawad features the world’s largest internally flawless diamond.

 

 

The 407ct yellow step-cut diamond is attached to a rose gold chain adorned with a further 91 white diamonds weighing more than 200cts, and arranged in an asymmetrical design that recalls the leaves of a vine. The magnificent centrepiece diamond was found by chance in a discarded pile of mining rubble by a young girl in the African Congo in the 1980s.

 

 

 

It was exhibited in museums, including the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, before being incorporated into this stunning Mouawad necklace, which was first unveiled at the Doha Jewellery and Watch Exhibition in 2013.
