FIT FOR A QUEEN
At nearly $3 million, the Tiffany Golden Star necklace from Tiffany & Co. (tiffany.com) is as regal as jewelry gets. A so-called fancy intense yellow diamond weighing in at more than 21 carats provides a burst of citrus color and is anchored by more than 70 carats of white diamonds.
FLIGHT OF FANCY
From Miami designer Daniella Kronfle (daniellakronfle.com), this Butterfly necklace from the Charmed Collection features chalcedony and iolite stones surrounded by white diamonds. As the designer puts it, the piece symbolizes “joy and energy enclosed with a spirit of freedom.”
GREEN WITH ENVY
The Paraiba necklace from Lugano Diamonds (luganodiamonds.com) gets its name from the nearly 18-carat blue-green rare stone that’s the focal point of the bauble. The precious gem is ensconced by more than 30 carats of briolette and round brilliant diamonds.
ALL OR NOTHING
A half-million-dollar investment, this Oscar Heyman necklace for Hamilton Jewelers (hamiltonjewelers.com) is a rainbow of color with sapphires in various hues, tsavorites and brilliant round diamonds, all handcrafted in platinum and 18K gold.
Miami Beach fashionista and designer Hayley Denman (hayleystyle.com) is beloved for her modern interpretations of fine jewelry, and this piece is a perfect example of her work. This 18K yellow gold and sterling silver pavé diamond sunburst hangs on a 14K yellow gold paperclip chain, making it ideal for daytime or evening wear.
