Superstar soprano Jessica Pratt returns to the stage with a triumphant performance in The Tales of Hoffmann - and in her honour, had a bespoke necklace worth a staggering $1.8m designed for her.
In this season of The Tales of Hoffmann, Jessica Pratt returned home from her recent overseas success to perform one of opera’s greatest challenges.
Jessica follows in the footsteps of Dame Joan Sutherland by singing all four soprano roles in the production – something only a handful of singers in the world have accomplished.
And to celebrate her return to the home stage, Australian jeweller House of K’dor designed a bespoke jewellery creation - a spectacular necklace representing the four intoxicating soprano parts in Offenbach’s last and greatest work, bringing to life the artistry of the worlds of jewellery design and opera in dazzling effect.
Featuring four spectacular stones, each representing one of the roles, this meticulously handcrafted necklace by K’dor’s master jeweller showcases an incredible 7.11ct round brilliant diamond.
It is accompanied by a rare selection of Australian gemstones. Including, a round brilliant cut 8.22ct teal coloured Sapphire, a 1.90ct red Garnet and an exquisite 26ct ‘Red on Black’ Opal featuring the highly sought after harlequin pattern which reflects four iridescent colours inspired by the characters.
The necklace features an endless flow of 120 additional brilliant cut diamonds all set in 18k white gold. This bespoke masterpiece - seen in the video below - is valued at $1.8m.
With an impressive roster of A-list clientele, including global superstar Kelly Rowland, singer Natalie Bassingthwaighte, as well as personalities such as WAG Kyly Clarke, heiress Deborah Symond-O'Neil ,Kyle Sandiland, and style icon Terry Biviano, House Of K'dor has truly captured the attention of the elite.
House of K’dor Owner Zena K’dor said: “We’re thrilled to have collaborated with Opera Australia to design and create an extraordinary custom piece in celebration of Jessica Pratt’s performance in The Tales of Hoffmann."
