This exact Sterling silver pendant is in stock and is ready for immediate shipping.
This classic design is # 489 of our online style selection catalog. The main gem sits in a basket that has been slotted for additional light entrance into the gemstones and is secured by four prongs. The bail is rigid and has bead set accent stones on the face.
This is a Oregon Sunstone measuring 7 x 7 x 4.8 mm and weighing 1.18 carat from the USA. This precision faceted gem had no heat treatment and was cut from our own rough stone. The colors shown in the photos are very accurate. The clarity is eye clean, minimal copper shiller visible.
The accents on the bail are White Sapphires from Ceylon. These are eye clean faceted 2.5 mm rounds.
This fine pendant measures about 17 mm from top to bottom. The bail/ slot will accommodate your chain fastener or cord up to approximately 3 mm. It weighs about 2.1 grams.
We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequentially our alloys are a little on the rich side of .925 Sterling. Copper alone is the remaining 7%. We do not add base metal in our alloy so there is less chance for any allergic reaction.
Thailand’s Gem Markets
Being gemologist in Thailand makes providing you with the right gemstones a snap. Furthermore, the gem markets here are nothing short of amazing! We shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Additionally, a precision gem cutter is working for our operation. Of course, we also source fine gemstone rough with our worldwide network of contacts in the mining business.
Since we love to travel and shop for gemstones, we do act as a buyer’s guide to the gem markets for any visitor that would like assistance. Often we can meet you at a gem market or even pick you up at the airport to get our adventure started.
Custom cut gemstones
An essential part of our service is custom gemstone cutting. You may buy rough stones from our site or mail rough to us to be precision faceted or cabbed into the shapes that you desire. In addition, many gemstones that are already native cut will be improved in clarity and light return by a new precision cut. Custom orders on gemstone cutting are normally ready in just two weeks.
Your gems or ours
Select gemstones from our site or send us yours for your own LEE jewelry piece. We will provide the mailing address along with special instructions on shipping stones to us. You may select the main stone plus the exact number of accent stones from right here. Please ask if you do not see exactly the gemstones you are looking for. In addition to our listed gemstones we have thousands more in stock that are ready yet are unlisted.
Please note that we are comfortable to work with your personal stones but do not have any insurance to protect them. Consequently, the stones will be at your risk only. When we use stones from our store for your custom order we back them for the purchase price. We do not guarantee or insure a stone that we did not sell. That said, it is not common that one breaks or is damaged in setting.
We are happy to make you a custom piece of jewelry with Sterling 925 silver or 18K yellow gold. You may also request that we use 999 silver or 965 yellow gold. Furthermore, you may decide on a combination of our metals such as a gold bezel in a silver ring.
