Russian Necklace at Discount Price
I wrote about this not too long ago in my post " Diamonds from Russia with Love," and it looks like the predictions where pretty close. Rather than 1.9 million it was sold for 1.5 million. This diamond necklace, according to Sotheby's is the most historically significant necklace they've auctioned off in 30 years. They wouldn't say who purchased this necklace, once worn by Katherine the Great, other than that she was also a lady of noble birth. At least this time, the articles I found on line offered a few pictures of the finished piece. I've been dying to know what this thing looked like! Not something you'd wear shopping, but amazing none the less.
