One of the many, many wonderful things about diamond necklaces is their ability to elevate nearly any outfit. If you have a special occasion on your calendar, any one of these stunning necklaces would make the ideal accessory.
The panther is emblematic of Cartier jewelry, and the Maison currently sells an entire collection of jaw-dropping panther jewelry. Our favorite piece is the Panthere De Cartier Necklace, crafted from 18K white gold and set with 1,352 brilliant-cut diamonds. The diamonds alone total 6.26 carats, while two emerald eyes and onyx add more value to the exquisite piece. The necklace sells for $245,000 before tax.
Designed to replicate the look of a wreath of flowers, the Mikimoto Classic White South Sea Cultured Pearl and Diamond Necklace highlights White South Sea cultured pearls by surrounding them with diamond and white gold petals. This necklace features 53.98 carats of white diamonds, and its price is available upon request.
For the bold and sensual fashionista, the Bulgari Serpenti Necklace allows you to have a white gold and diamond serpent coiled around your throat. The 75.85 total carats include hundreds of pave diamonds as well as two pear shaped diamonds. Price available upon request.
Van Cleef & Arpels
The Van Cleef & Arpels À Cheval necklace features five strands of diamonds, ingeniously superimposed onto each other to create a brilliant, dimensional necklace. This stunning necklace features 465 stones, totalling over 90 carats. The À Cheval necklace will set you back $760,000.
Our favorite choice of all is the Secret Combination by Harry Winston, Diamond Necklace. The necklace is actually made of several detachable strands of fancy cut diamonds which can be removed and re-added to create various necklace designs. Whether you would like to keep the look simple with a single strand of brilliant cut stones, or layer every stand together for a high-impact look, the necklace allows for a wide variety of striking arrangements. The piece consists of 568 marquise, square emerald-cut, and round brilliant diamonds for a total of 115.90 carats which are all set in platinum. The price for this singular necklace is available upon request.
