Diamond Necklace with a beating heart

New York-based Paul Forrest Co. is bringing jewellery to life with a diamond-encrusted necklace that’s built with its very own beating heart. The action of the beating heart is controlled by a mechanical movement similar to that found in a watch.

The mainspring, which is wound by a tiny key, powers a chain of trains, levers and wheels that drive the beating halves in the pendant, slowly moving back and forth to create the illusion of a beating heart.
The movements are all made in Switzerland, with price points ranging from $19,000 to $45,000.

Customers can personalize their pendants with a selection of diamonds or gemstones.
