The Victoria-Transvaal Diamond was cut from a 240-carat rough stone found at the Premier Mine in Transvaal, South Africa in 1951. The fancy "champagne-colored" diamond was originally cut to 75 carats, but then later re-cut to 67.89 carats for better proportions. The diamond was graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and given a color grade of natural fancy brown-yellow with a clarity grade of VS-2. The Victoria-Transvaal Diamond is a pear-shaped brilliant-cut and has 116 facets. The yellow gold necklace was designed by Baumgold Brothers, Inc. and consists of 66 round brilliant-cut diamonds fringed with 10 drop motifs, each set with two marquise-cut diamonds, a pear-shaped diamond, and a small round brilliant-cut diamond. Total weight of the 106 diamonds in the necklace is approximately 45 carats.

TOO BIG AND DEFECTIVE I have always wanted this I finally decided because it was on easy was far too fake looking, somehow the easy pay didn't take and the clasp was broken...whatever happened to the Quality of QVC I don't know....I was so disappointed and it went back a hurry!!! 07-25-14
Beautiful piece but ... The center large tear drop stone raises off the chest by at least 1/2 inch because of the 'cage like' setting which looks too small for the stone because the stone spills out and is not like the original picture of the piece at the Smithsonian, The original lies close over the chest area. Two of the marquise drops arrived bent and crooked and I was able to fixed them with my fingers because the metal is soft enough which also means they can easily bent again or break off. And the stones on the tennis necklace have no regular facets the glass just come to a simple point which makes them look FAKE if you look at them close but somehow they manage to give off a nice sparkle. My necklace arrived dirty and dull but I cleaned it and it really sparkled. In spite of all the negatives, I think I will keep it because I like the boldness of the large teardrop and the sparkle which is good. I know the workmanship is very poor so I will have to wear it with extreme care. And the black plastic cover it came in smells so 'stinky' that airing out has not helped take the smell out. 07-24-14
WOW! My socks were definitely knocked off when I opened the box - this necklace is a killer!! Even better than I expected - a real dazzler!! 01-17-14
If you dress up I love this necklace but is it something that I will have to set and look at? If the pendant was smaller and flatter I guess I could wear it more, plus I like the above person wish that qvc made outfits to go with this gorgeous necklace. I won't deny that this is a very beautiful piece of jewelry and very well made but I don't know if it is for me or not. Hope I will be able to keep this beautiful piece but I don't know. 11-24-13
Pure Perfection I got this in the Champagne over 2 years ago, and just happened to see it on sale now and got it in the clear. They both look D flawless, and seriously nothing short of what a Newport RI socialite would be wearing. This couldn't look more real. 09-25-13
Absolute Stunner I have to agree with the review about where do I wear this thing. The necklace is very well made. I purchased the conac color and it is a vibrant orangey brown color that is just breath taking. To wear this, one would need a top that is plain yet elegant and squared off at the shoulders. Or a very sleek turtle neck that is not a cowl neck top to be paired with an expensive pair of jeweled jeans or silk/ velvet pants. The only other option is a gown. I bought the necklace knowing it was a show piece that will probably never be worn much but since it was on 4 easy payments and the price was dropped, I bought it. That being said, the piece is spectacular, looks very elegant and even for it's size, real. I just wish QVC had some clothing options to go along with the necklace shown. There is nothing that can be paired with the necklace on QVC or in any store on the mall. I will probably just display it in the curio cabinet in the main hall of our house. 09-18-13
unsure I ordered both colors. On the one hand, they are beautiful and look like museum pieces. On the other hand, they are large and look like museum pieces, so where would I wear them? Do I really want to pay over 200.00 for something I may never wear? Do I just keep them as collector's items?The fact that they are limited editions of 240 is also a concern. If I return them, I may never be able to change my mind and reorder, especially at the price and easy pays I got on these. What a dilemma.. 09-17-13
