Marcial de Gomar is proud to offer this incredible work of wearable art in celebrating his life's work. This natural Colombian emerald and diamond tiara that transforms beautifully into a necklace is masterfully crafted in 18 karat white gold and features 889 round brilliant diamonds of VS/SI and F/G quality, weighing 7.86 carats total weight, and 35 mixed cut natural Colombian emeralds of pear shape and emerald cut from the Muzo region, weighing 14.27 carats total weight.

The concept of a tiara that converts into a necklace has existed since the late 18th century, and was eventually realized by a new approach in mastering the construction of the tiara. This design, it is believed, will be the first of this kind in the Americas. Because of the delicate and complicated nature of the convertible tiara, it took 13 months to complete this masterpiece, in addition to the time it took to collect and acquire the matching emeralds from the Muzo and Chivor regions of Colombia.

A befitting crown of jewels to encircle the head and the heart of the fortunate owner of this remarkable and versatile design!

Accompanied by GIA Report 6183148231 of January 31, 2017.

Note: Due to the inability of current technology capturing the blue green hues and light dispersion in emeralds accurately, digital and particularly print images, do no justice to the true beauty, color and fire of Colombian emeralds. These magnificent specimens truly need to be seen with the naked eye to be appreciated to their full extent.
