Laurence Graff has a reputation for acquiring the finest, most beautiful gemstones—whatever the cost—and the incredible necklace shown here will only enhance that reputation. Completed earlier this year after months of painstaking crafting, it features 144 carats of brilliantly sparkling diamonds. At its heart is an internally flawless, fancy light pink pear-shaped diamond weighing 70.39 carats, which was cut from an exquisite piece of rough stone mined in South America. No other light pink pear-shaped diamond in the world rivals its size and clarity. Surrounding it are 44 fine white pear-shaped diamonds that weigh an additional 73.61 carats. A simple platinum setting was chosen to best display the fiery beauty of the gemstones.

Price: $10 million. Contact: Graff, 212.355.9292, graffdiamonds@aol.com
