Love Island UK contestant Gemma Owen has been spotted wearing an ultra-rare Tiffany Schlumberger diamond necklace that is 100% my type on paper. The fan favorite happens to be the daughter of football (read: soccer) player Michael Owen, so it’s safe to assume she’s wearing the real deal.
The necklace is a vintage Tiffany & Co piece designed by the famous Jean Schlumberger, featuring his signature X design. The necklace features 92 round brilliant-cut diamonds in between 18K gold X’s. Recently sold for $50K on 1stDibs, the necklace is worth just as much as prize money Gemma could win on Love Island. Clearly, she’s really in this for love!
The beautiful necklace is a tough find, but you can still shop for the matching ring, earrings, and bracelet on Tiffany & Co’s website. Each feature round, brilliant cut diamonds and 18K yellow gold Xs like the necklace. The ring comes in at 1.14cts with 16 stones, the bracelet at 2.95cts with 36 stones, and the hoops at 1.8cts with 20 stones.
Jean Schlumberger was hired to work as a designer for Tiffany & Co in 1956 and created iconic pieces for the brand throughout the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. Inspired by nature and architecture, Schlumberger designed some of Tiffany & Co’s most famous pieces, including the Ribbon Rosette necklace that held the brand’s famous 128.54-carat yellow diamond, which is now set in the Bird on a Rock brooch.
It’s a gorgeous piece though, innit? Here’s to hoping Gemma finds love on the show and maybe gets a matching natural diamond ring to her diamond necklace.
