    Prince prop diamond and pearl necklace with paisley clasp from the Diamonds and Pearls music video. (Warner Bros., 1991) Throughout the erotic and artistic music video for the lead single from Prince's thirteenth studio album, Prince handles this elaborate necklace during contemplative solo sequences. Constructed of four 19 in. strands of faux pearls coupled by a silver metal deco-style paisley-shaped clasp set with emerald cut and round cut faux diamonds. The front of the necklace is designed to be a four-strand choker. Attached to the paisley clasp on the back are twelve dangling strands with tear drop pearls at the bottom (two-tear drop pearls are missing which is evident in the music video). Acquired in the mid-1990s at a black tie charity event held at the Drake Hotel in Chicago and comes with a letter of provenance. A piece inseparable from the iconoclastic performer's enduring legacy. In production used very good condition.
