This is the seventieth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Ilyana. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine where to make cuts in the necklace to create three strands of gems worth the same amount of money.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You'll have a tough time if you just dive straight into adding up different strings of gems. There's an order you need to proceed in. Why don't you start by adding up the total value of the necklace?

Hint Two
    If you added the totals correctly, you should have gotten $7,800. You want to divide this total into three sections of equal worth, so each section of the necklace in your solution will need to be worth $2,600.

Hint Three
    No single strand will contain more than one of three stones worth 1,000 or more dollars. Coincidentally, each of these three stones will form an end for each strand.

    Now all you need to figure out is which side of each 1,000-plus dollar stone connects to another stone.
