Classy, just classy. 

To mark the 100th anniversary of the JA New York Show and to commemorate the tragedy befallen New York City on September 11, 2001, jewelry designer Nayna Mehta created what she calls Twin Towers.

Twin Towers has an 18 karat yellow gold base and supporting structure for 14,080 diamonds (total weight 255 carats.) The floors of both towers are represented using  110 rows of diamonds, using princess cut stones measuring 1.4mm each. At the base of the World Trade Center replica, Mehta inscribed a poem she wrote in memory of nearly 3,000 lives lost.
