Kat Florence Paraiba Tourmaline necklace

Now tell me, how gorgeous is this unique 98.50 carat Paraiba Tourmaline necklace by Kat Florence.
The necklace includes 145 grams of 18k gold, 1842 diamonds including 23.84 carats of VVS1 diamonds and the 98.50carat Paraiba Tourmaline center piece.

“When I first saw this stone I wanted to set it in a jewelry piece with diamonds bursting around the Paraiba, a splash of diamonds setting the stage for this dramatic gemstone…..I love working with Paraibas, the natural glowing color is so magnetic.  As the design developed I really tried to fuse a romance of the past with modern structure, to fantastic feminine effect.  Creating a piece as elegant and modern as it is delicate and dramatic. ” says Kat.

I discovered Kat Florence’s creations a year or two ago and instantly fell in love with her gorgeous and unique creations which are beyond exquisite. Highly detailed with the rarest gems, this is high joaillerie at its best. Truly wonderful jewels which blow your mind over and over again.

It is all about the details


Setting the 98.50 carats Paraiba Tourmaline into the necklace

VVS1 diamonds: Very Very Small inclusions.
VVS clarity diamonds have a very small flaw or flaws that can only be spotted by a professional using a 10X loupe. For an ordinary person even when looking at the diamond with 40X microscope such flaws are very hard to be spotted.
