Tiffany & Co. announces the making of its upcoming creation, a reimagined piece of the jeweller’s archival high jewellery necklace from 1939. The original aquamarine design will be reinterpreted with a rare D-colour diamond of over 80 carats - largest diamond ever presented by TIffany and outshined only by the unattainable Tiffany Yellow Diamond. 

Expected to be Tiffany’s most valuable jewellery, the said diamond necklace will be unveiled in honour of the relaunch of the Maison’s flagship store at Fifth Avenue, New York City, paralleled the original necklace’s legendary debut at the World’s Fair nearly a century ago.

“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.”

In its 183-year history, TIffany has acquired many rare gemstones as part of its jewellery designs, which includes the legendary Tiffany Diamond, one of the world’s largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds, as well as the Hooker Emerald, now exhibited at the Smithsonian and the Mazarin Diamonds, purchased by Tiffany at the auction of the French Crown Jewels.
