Necklace of the Year 2018 NOWItem# 406823-00007GGNEW
The past is history, the future is a secret and every moment is a gift. – Now. The best time to enjoy life and love.
We often think back to the past with happiness and dream about the secrets that the future holds. But what about that precious moment that is happening right NOW? Too often, it goes by unnoticed. In this special anniversary year, the Wellendorff jewellery manufactory celebrates 125 years of rich history, with the exceptional Necklace of the Year NOW, allowing us to treasure today and catch a glimpse of the golden years ahead.
At first glance, the Necklace of the Year 2018 NOW is a classic, concentric piece that can be worn easily every day. However, the art of producing this necklace lies in the special skill and intuition of Wellendorff’s goldsmiths and in the manufactory’s 125 years of jewellery making experience.
A brilliant strand of diamonds is elegantly surrounded by three Brilliance of the Sun ropes. The piece hangs perfectly against the body, thanks to our specially devised settings.
In the centre of the necklace, two of the golden strands are held together discreetly: the painstakingly precise craftsmanship creates inherent tension, making the ropes fan out slightly and nestle perfectly underneath the diamonds. The third Brilliance of the Sun strand rests gently above, creating a focal point and turning the entire necklace into a symbol of life, whose journey is defined each day by the inseparable trilogy of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The past influences what the present holds in store, and the decisions of today shape the history of tomorrow.
The very special moments in our journey through life sparkle brightly in our memory and stay with us as we go forward, just like the closely set row of diamonds -- each of the 141 stones — totaling 6.472 carats — representing a particular moment of happiness in the wearer's life.
The number of diamonds in the strand – 141 – is a reference to the number of necklaces in this edition: To commemorate the 41st anniversary of the Wellendorff silk rope, only 41 necklaces of this type will be produced in 18-karat yellow or white gold, according to the customer’s wishes.
The Wellendorff clasp and extension chain complete the necklace and ensure that it is a perfect fit for each lucky owner. The extension chain is meticulously finished with a hand-set pavé heart, with space inside for the limited-edition number, as well as a precious moment that the wearer wishes to capture in gold, NOW and forever.
The most valuable trademark in the world, the Diamond W, stands for the Wellendorff jewellery manufactory’s 125 years of workmanship and tradition. It guarantees its wearer a hand-crafted masterpiece to remind her of powerful emotions and moments of personal happiness – to last a lifetime.
