Marc Newson Fractal Necklace


His diamond and sapphire one-of-a-kind piece was created for Boucheron.

It was inspired by Newson's obsession with the Julia sets of fractals discovered by Gaston Julia in the early 1900s.

The necklace "... contains around 2000 pavé stones and took the company's craftspeople 1,500 hours to realize using rapid-prototyping technology and a minimal three-prong setting, so the stones appear to float on the wearer's throat," wrote Sandra Ballentine in the New York Times "The Moment" blog.

Said Newson, "I wasn't thinking luxury at all, but the technical rigorousness of the piece, as well as the sheer number of stones that went into it will probably make this one of the most expensive necklaces Boucheron's ever made."

Apply within.

This makes three, then. But not for wearing; for having out on a pedestal next to my nest where I read, yak, paint, write, listen, entertain cats, eat 50% of meals, etc., so I can gaze upon its wonderfulness.
