An extraordinary necklace with 722 diamonds (and not only) presented by Messika at Baselworld ♦ ︎
Messika is synonymous with diamonds. More: it is perhaps the Maison that most interprets the diamonds used in high, very fine jewelry, but with a modern vision, new, able to amaze. So Valérie Messika brought to Baselworld a series of extraordinary pieces, all composed of the hot glacial stone loved by women (and by diamond collectors). We’ll talk about it in the next days. But among all the pieces stood the necklace inspired by haute couture. And a collection dedicated to the Little Mermaid (a dream when the designer was a child), but the necklace is rightly defined by Messika as majestic.
Messika has aligned 722 diamonds with emerald cut in a composition that leaves electrocuted. At the top, in the middle, there is an emerald-cut diamond of 5.01 carats, while in total the carats of the necklace are 219.2, obviously all of the best quality. To give an idea, the realization of the necklace required almost 2000 hours of work, and of course it is made entirely by hand. In addition to this necklace, there are also a bracelet, a ring and a pair of earrings.
The necklace was then worn by model Sasha Pivovarova and portrayed by Katja Rawles’s lens. Result: a breath of fresh air for high jewelry. Giulia Netrese
