This exact Sterling silver pendant is in stock and is ready for immediate shipping.
Here is a truly classic design in a well dressed ladies gemstone pendant. This is a hand hammered design crafted in style # 479 of our online design selection catalog. The feature gem is prong set into the pocket of the main frame, a secure mount that leaves most of the gem on display. A halo of prong set accent gems, each in its own tube basket, surround the feature. A foundation is formed by the gem basket being connected together with the accent tubes by the dual purpose prongs. This simplistic yet well thought out design forms spaces to allow light entrance into all the gems from the sides. The back is open to allow additional light entrance. The bail allows the pendant to dangle and is also adorned with stylish shaping. This style has become a classic because it shows the gems at near maximum level with a minimal show and low usage of the metal, an efficient choice for gold, nearly all gemstone by appearance.
I selected this lovely Oregon Sunstone gem with a sunny light yellow color and VS eye clean clarity to be the feature. It is a natural gem with no treatment from the family operated Misha 2 2 mine. It weighs 3.58 carat and is an expertly executed hand faceted pear cut measuring 15.8 x 9 x 5.3 mm.
The 22 accents are 2.1 mm well saturated green Tsavorite Garnet from Africa that are mixed in clarity, weigh a total of .85 carat and also had no treatment. Completely untreated natural colorful gems in this piece.
This heirloom piece measures about 30 mm tall. It will accommodate your chain up to approximately 3.75 mm. The weight of this particular piece is about 3.25 grams.
You may custom order a pendant in this design # 479 with other gemstones and it will be ready to ship in about 2-4 weeks. The main gem’s shapes can be most any and the halo will follow its shape. The accents are ideally round. You may select the gems from our complete inventory on the main website then message us for a quote.
