I spotted this necklace in a small mention of a new exhibit at The Field Museum in Chicago, The Nature of Diamonds. “Milky Way” and “necklace” were all I needed to read before I scurried off to the Vast and Wonderous Intarwebs to find a larger picture, and luckily, a description!
“Milky Way” Necklace: This voluminous necklace, designed by Dieter Huebner, sponsored by Brinkhaus Jewelers, is adorned with 2,000 luminous diamonds.
The “Milky Way” necklace was designed in 2000 as a celebration and ode to the millennium.
Judging from the descriptive term “voluminous”, and taking into account the 2,000 diamonds, I can safely say this bauble is out of the realm of possible purchases, for, well, ANYBODY. All the same, I’d love to see it around a neck, for scale if nothing else.
