Julia in the Sky With Diamonds

Can I possibly begin to explain how badly I would love to own this necklace? Of course, it's a one-of-a-kind diamond and sapphire creation by Marc Newson for Boucheron inspired by fractals—more specifically the Julia Sets of fractals discovered by Gaston Julia in the early 1900s. The Julia necklace contains 2,000 individual stones, took Boucheron craftspeople 1,500 hours to fabricate, and is the most expensive piece of jewelry the house has ever produced.

I have never claimed to have cheap taste.
