Hooker Yellow Diamonds
Together, the 50 matched diamonds in this necklace weight about 245 carats. The earclips feature two yellow diamonds of about 25.3 carats each. The ring showcases the largest diamond of the ensemble. It weights 61.12 carats.

A Dazzling Ensemble
A special kind of cut called starburt gives these fancy yellow diamonds their brilliant sparkle. Designed by Cartier, Inc., the fabulous suite—necklace, earclips, and ring—was purchased by Janet Annenberg Hooker in 1989-90.
