Sharon Stone and Paris Hilton were among the guests.
Mr Gruosi said 80 bodyguards, local police, hotel security, and De Grisogono staff had been on duty but when a check was made at the end of the night the diamond necklace was missing.
"We don't know exactly what happened ... it was one of the most beautiful items we had," Gruosi told said
