Necklaces, albeit not always encrusted in diamonds, have been an integral feature of human history as far back as 40,000 B.C. when they were first used as decoration. Just about any natural material that could be found e.g. stones, shells, wood even bones , was used to make necklaces in those early days. Whilst necklaces in early times served many purposes such as warding off evil spirits, illness etc., most often necklaces were given as tokens of affection and love as they are today.
When it comes to the history of diamond necklaces, they were originally only the property of royalty, with one of the most famous stories revolving around Napoleon Bonaparte presenting his empress, Marie-Louise, with a stunning diamond necklace as a celebration of the birth of their son. The diamond necklace has always been a rich part of the world’s history gaining worldwide attention such as the world's most expensive diamond necklace “A Heritage in Bloom” designed by Chinese master jeweller Wallace Chan unveiled in September 2015. This stunning diamond necklace is set with an incredible 11,551 diamonds weighing a total of 383.4 carats. It incorporates 24 D-colour internally flawless diamonds, all cut from a 507.55ct rough stone, including the 104ct centrepiece surrounded by jade. The spectacular necklace took more than 47,000 hours to complete and the modular design means that it can be worn in 27 different ways. It is worth a staggering $200 million.
