Look for flashes of color in the 116 facets of this pear-shaped, champagne-colored diamond. Cut from a 240-carat crystal, it is suspended from a chain of 108 diamonds that total about 45 carats. The necklace was designed by Baumgold Brothers, Inc. The necklace was donated to the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History by Leonard and Victoria Wilkinson in 1977.
