The centrepiece of this necklace is a 1.77-carat oval Fancy Intense yellow diamond with a brilliant-cut diamond surmount.   Industry experts believe it could sell for between $14,000 and $21,000 but considering how yellow diamonds have been doing at auction lately, these numbers may be conservative.
