Metamorphosis by De Beers

Prelude Necklace

A majestic transformable High Jewellery necklace featuring four strands of diamonds suspended between two intricately detailed medallions. A masterclass of savoir-faire, each strand showcases a specialised goldsmithing and diamond-setting technique. Bead-set diamonds are joined by fil couteau (knife-edge) to mimic the fledgling buds of spring, a rope of yellow gold evokes ripples on summer sand, brown diamonds conjure autumn’s russet leaves, and white gold serti neige (snow setting) echoes the glacial beauty of winter. The exceptional craftsmanship continues on the medallions, where the strands carry on their rhythmic journey, circling two round brilliant white diamonds of 0.70 carats apiece. The dazzling medallions can be detached and used to fasten the necklace as a rivière. The four strands can also be worn alone, offering three distinctive looks within one spectacular design. Total weight of 35.83 carats.
