Setting Records

If you’re interested in world records, then you’ll love this little Guiness­-worthy tidbit: priciest pearl necklace.  About two weeks ago, Christie’s had an auction that garnered some impressive profits.  Of those, the four ­strand natural­ color pearl necklace topped the list at a price of $5.76 million.  It beat not only the world record but also Christie’s own estimate of the piece, which was set between $3.8 and $4.5 million.  The pearls, measuring between 4.9 to 12.65 mm, are varying shades of metallic blues, greens, and purples; they are strung in four consecutive rows, the largest pearls at the throat with the size receding gradually up the nape of the neck. The clasp is an elegant flower ­shaped gem.
