Crafted by legendary jeweler Oscar Heyman, this breathtaking necklace features 45 oval star sapphires weighing 182.46 carats, 16 star rubies weighing 17.55 carats, and 12.48 carats of diamonds. Showcasing luminous cornflower blue and vivid red hues, the stunning ensemble is set in platinum.

The "star" effect in these remarkable stones results from a phenomenon called asterism. This occurs when tiny needle-like titanium dioxide, or rutile, fibers form within the sapphire, creating what appears to be the rays of a star when viewed under a single, concentrated light source.

World-renowned for remarkable attention to detail, Oscar Heyman was founded in New York in 1912 by nine brothers and sisters, recent émigrés from Latvia. Thanks to apprenticeships at the Fabergé workshops and experience with tool-making, the company built a reputation for producing impeccable jewelry by controlling every aspect of production, from initial design to alloying its own precious metals. This necklace is an extraordinary example of the outstanding craftsmanship that defines Oscar Heyman's highly coveted designs.
