World-famous jewellery brand Tiffany & Co is to exhibit its Empire Diamond Necklace, which was inspired by a piece that was on show at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York, complete with an 80.33-carat diamond.
Tatler Asia reports that the Empire Diamond, the largest diamond offered by Tiffany and second only to the Tiffany Diamond which is not for sale, was on display in Singapore until 15 August, as part of the brand’s Blue Book Collection, before it returns to New York to be installed in the necklace.
The original aquamarine design of the necklace has been modernised with the addition of the Empire Diamond, and the brand has announced that the piece will be unveiled at the 2022 reopening of its New York City flagship store, where it will be presented as a homage to the inception of the new store.
Victoria Reynolds, Tiffany & Co chief gemologist, said about the use of the famed diamond at the reopening of Tiffany & Co’s NYC store: “What better way to mark the opening of our transformed Tiffany flagship store in 2022 than to reimagine this incredible necklace from the 1939 World’s Fair, one of our most celebrated pieces when we opened our doors on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue for the first time.
“The new necklace perfectly reflects our brand heritage as a New York luxury jeweller, whose founder was known as the ‘King of Diamonds.’”
