?The necklace was simple?gold woven into a thick rope of a chain, almost scaled, like a smooth snake that would curl close around the throat. One jewel hung suspended from the rope: a white diamond the size of a golf ball.?

THE EXPERT SAYS
"I love the idea that a diamond that size would be a droplet shape, rather than a round stone. It?s so timeless and also has the undercurrent of something liquid?like a tear or a drop of blood. The heaviness of the chain is almost serpentine. It's a summation of their love story in that sort of elegant yet menacing way a gold snake wrapped around one's neck would feel, but also symbolizes eternity. I think the Volturi would have intended both interpretations for this piece of jewelry."
