The Cullinan Blue Diamond necklace is a historical piece of jewelry that was presented by Thomas Cullinan, then chairman of the Premier Mine in South Africa, to his wife Annie, about 100 years ago. The gift was to commemorate the largest rough diamond ever mined, the 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond that was discovered in 1905. Cullinan didn't keep this gem for himself. Instead, it was presented to King Edward VII of England by the Transvaal Government, and Cullinan was subsequently given knighthood.

Blue and ribbon never looked better together. For a winning look, this necklace flaunts small, round simulated diamonds set in the ribbon design, while the openwork bow is accented with round, prong-set simulated blue diamonds in various sizes.

The knot design consists of a round, multi-prong-set simulated diamond center bordered by even more simulated diamonds. Dangling below is a round simulated blue diamond surrounded by simulated diamonds in graduating sizes. The rolo chain sparkles with bezel-set simulated diamonds, making this precious piece a first-prize beauty all around.

So pretty!!!! I was glad I saw this and that I got it on sale was even better. So pretty on I was sorry the earrings were gone but I wear the other blue ones and they look just as good. I feels like you step back in time feels great on and is not to heavy. So happy I got this while they still had it. Great job 08-29-12
two stones were missing Mine arrived with two stones missing. Even at $50.00 the necklace did not seem to be worth the price. I bought to give to my 21 year old daughter but decided to return instead especially since 2 stones were missing. Would be cute on a prom dress. But probably not for anyone older than 19. 05-12-12
Very Unique Piece I have never order a piece like this before, but I am enchanted with it! Very different and eye catching. I was afraid it would be over the top because of the carat weight, but it is not. The carat weight fits the size of the piece. I am very pleased and will enjoy wearing it! 12-16-11
Not that pretty I received this necklace today. It doesn't look as delicate as I had hoped. I love Victorian style jewelery but this disappointed me. I am a jewelery lover, big time. I have the big mirror stand jewelery keeper and it's stuffed. I am on the fence about this one. It may go back. 09-01-11

Unbelievably Beautiful Wow! This is gorgeous in person. The stones are so billiant. The 'diamond' has such a lovely color. I have ordered a lot of jewelry from QVC and not received anything this lovely before. You've outdone yourself. 12-09-10
