The Marie Antoinette Necklace is yet another beautifully crafted piece of jewellery created by the diamntieers at De Beers. The company, which has been the most important player on the diamond mining and trading industry ever since its establishment in 1888, held the monopoly on the diamond market for well over a century. Huge pressure eventually led to the resignment from their worldwide monopoly, thus De Beers never ceased playing the important role they always had in their areas of expertise.
The fact that Cecil Rhodes, the founder of the company, was actually the first businessman to invest and fight for his own mining sites in areas where diamonds were discovered lead to the notoriety of the brand’s name. In spite of ferocious competition De Beers managed to hold on to their privileged spot until the brink of the 21st century. The monopoly was actually given up in the 1990’s and the brand’s strategies and marketing policies were completely changed.
The adaptability of the company and their final decision of letting go into the general economical pressures did not bring bankruptcy or disasters, as many had thought. Nowadays, when the company holds only 40% of the shares their revenue is much higher than back in the days when they held twice as many percents.
The Marie Antoinette Necklace triggers with it historical and stylistic hallmarks that are evident in the opulence and majesty of the design. The spectacular piece of jewelry features exquisite fancy diamonds and the binding of the various cut diamonds is a sight for sore eyes. It could not have been any different if there is talk of the famous queen of France, Marie Antoinette.
The Marie Antoinette Necklace features three exceptional fancy diamonds of intense colors. Two yellow ones and a deep pink one. The total weight of the diamonds is of 181 carats, an impressive amount of precious gems (each of them having respectable sizes). The elegant and gracious style for which Marie Antoinette was so envied for is visible from the very first glance in the Marie Antoinette Necklace.
With a destiny as spectacular as the beauty of the jewel it inspired, Marie Antoinette will stay forever in the memories of women all over the world through this amazing piece of art that can easily make history by its own qualities.De Beers Marie Antoinette Necklace,
