Jewellery brand Tiffany & Co is for a short time allowing viewings of its Empire Diamond necklace.

The 80.33ct diamond has been worked into a necklace inspired by the piece Tiffany exhibited at the 1939 World’s Fair.

The original aquamarine design has been modernised with the addition of the largest diamond ever offered by Tiffany, eclipsed only by the Tiffany Diamond which is not for sale.

The brand previously announced that the piece would be unveiled at 2022 the reopening of its New York flagship store.

Now, however, for a short time only it is being shown in Singapore until 15 August only.

It is being exhibited now as part of the brand’s Blue Book Collection.

On the use of the diamond at the reopening of Tiffany’s New York flagship, Victoria Reynolds, Tiffany & Co chief gemologist, said: “What better way to mark the opening of our transformed Tiffany flagship store in 2022 than to reimagine this incredible necklace from the 1939 World’s Fair, one of our most celebrated pieces when we opened our doors on 57th Street and Fifth Avenue for the first time.

“The new necklace perfectly reflects our brand heritage as a New York luxury jeweler, whose founder was known as the ‘King of Diamonds.’”
