Ella Gafter Four-Strand Pearl Diamond Necklace

$57,500

About

The high-class pearl and diamond necklace consists of a set of 4 independent strands for a total of 202 white homogeneous round Japanese Akoya pearls (Pinctada Fucata) of 9/9.5mm diameter. The pearls display a lovely nacre, lustre, and iridescence. The 4 identical 18 carat white gold clasps are decorated with round diamonds. There are 37 gold dividers each set with 6 round diamonds. The total weight of top quality diamonds is approximately 3.50 carats. The strands are strung to fall one below the other. Since the 4 clasps are identical, they can be put together to form one very long strand that can then be roped around creatively. One can also obtain a double opera length set, as shown in the following images, and other combinations are possible. The editorial images in the carousel suggest ways of wearing Ella Gafter long Akoya strands –of which there are several available on 1stdibs- and do not necessarily portray this specific set. About Ella Gafter: Ella Gafter is recognized as one of the world’s leading pearl jewelers, even earning herself the epithet of “The Queen of Pearls”. She is known both for sourcing these organic gems directly in Australia and for her exclusive use of pearls of high luster and uncommonly large size. Ella’s work has always enjoyed tremendous editorial coverage from world-class photographers and stylists in every type of publication. In 2001, an extraordinary corsage brooch by Ella Gafter was one of the very few contemporary pieces included in the American Museum of Natural History’s “Pearls” exhibition, which traveled around the world for 10 years. Recently, Ella has agreed to donate the brooch to their permanent collection; it will be prominently and permanently displayed in the new Hall of Gems and Minerals to open in the spring of 2021.

About the Maker

Ella Gafter

Ella Gafter is recognized as one of the world’s leading pearl jewelers, even earning herself the epithet of “The Queen of Pearls”. She is known both for sourcing these organic gems directly in Australia and for her exclusive use of pearls of high luster and uncommonly large size. Ella’s work has always enjoyed tremendous editorial coverage from world-class photographers and stylists in every type of publication. In 2001, an extraordinary corsage brooch by Ella Gafter was one of the very few contemporary pieces included in the American Museum of Natural History’s “Pearls” exhibition, which traveled around the world for 10 years. Recently, Ella has agreed to donate the brooch to their permanent collection; it will be prominently and permanently displayed in the new Hall of Gems and Minerals to open in the Spring of 2021. Every item is handcrafted in Naples, Italy. Skilled maestri, who combine the sculptor’s artistry with the engineer’s understanding of materials and techniques, dedicate their talent to realizing her daring, original designs. This marriage of the artisans’ guild-like discipline and Ella’s bold inventiveness often culminates in creations that transcend their purpose as high-end luxury products and pierce into the realm of genuine artistic expression. Ella Gafter has remained an independently owned family business since its inception in 1978. The business is run by Ella’s daughter, Talila Gafter, PhD.
