Product Note

Actress Carina Lau was photographed wearing this piece at the amfAR Gala Hong Kong 2019, but photos do not do it justice. The length of this dazzling strand is difficult to articulate. The best way to understand its scale is by understanding its carat weight. Eleven cushion-cut Colombian emeralds combine for 77.85 carats, juxtapositioned by 2.64 carats of white diamond pave. All of which is suspended by substantial links of 18k white gold. And as stunning as it is in this elongated configuration, this piece can also be worn in other ways. It was designed so that the emerald strand could also be wrapped around the neck like a traditional collar, or as a bracelet.  Another element that makes this piece so special is how precisely the size, color, luster, and cut are matched. It is a magnificent layout of graduating cushion-cut stones that only someone like Lorraine could achieve.
