Jewel of the day: Vhernier Calla necklace

The sculptural quality of this piece is what I love best about great jewellery. It’s meant to adorn, but can also be an expression of something greater. I’m reminded of a quote by Elizabeth Taylor, whose jewellery collection has been talked about a lot in the wake of her death: I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.

This is not, admittedly, the Krupp diamond, but it is a gorgeous and sinuous piece. Made by Italian jeweller Vhernier of ebony, white gold and diamonds. Find more information here.
