Tatler Singapore



Nirav Modi, who became famous following the sale of a necklace at Christie’s Hong Kong in 2010, has been featured in one of the episodes from Netflix’s new documentar­y Bad Boy Billionair­es: India. The series focuses on the corruption and money laundering scandals of several Indian billionair­es and Modi is one of them. The pearshaped Golconda diamondset necklace went under the hammer for HK$27.5 million, earning Modi the nickname “Diamond King”. He was later arrested in London and, at the time of writing, is fighting an extraditio­n case. When asked in 2016 during a Tatler interview how he felt being called “India’s youngest billionair­e”, Modi replied: “I just want to make beautiful jewellery; everything else is secondary.”
