Beautifully fabricated by hand, this pendant has a dainty Victorian feeling, even though it is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Navajo silver work. Multiple simple elements add up to a pretty, decorative effect. The stone, with its unexpected, luscious pink color, matches the silver work in impact, and the result is gorgeous.
Magenta sugilite was previously ignored, because it isn’t the typical, deep royal purple of the finest examples of this stone. But, just look at that ravishing raspberry hue! Who wouldn’t love it? The slender oval form is closely emphasized by the multiple rows of silver that surround the equally slender oval of the beautiful stone.
With a toothed bezel, the high, pillowed stone is set in a narrow shadowbox. A rounded silver rope, and then a chiseled border, surround the delicious peony-pink stone. Silver domes in graduated sizes, at the top, add more sparkle. Also chiseled the bail is proportional to the rest of the pendant, and will allow small beads, a chain, a narrow collar, or a cord.
The silver work shimmers and shines but with elegant and demure restraint, beautifully setting off the unusual stone. This pendant will bring the beauty of springtime to you, all year long.
