YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, who is the newest brand ambassador of Cartier jewels caught everyone’s attention at the Met Gala 2022 dripping in Cartier choker and headband. She wore a custom Louis Vuitton dress for the occasion, but the stunning fact is that she was also wearing a choker from Maharaja of Patiala.
The Maharaja was 34 when he decided to turn the De Beers diamond into an heirloom piece and commissioned Cartier to make a ceremonial necklace with the De Beers diamond being its centerpiece. The necklace was finally made in 1928 and it came to be known as the Patiala Necklace. It has five rows of platinum chains embellished with 2930 diamonds and some Burmese rubies. This was the most expensive piece of jewellery ever made in history and it would have cost some 30 million dollars today in its original form.
