Duane Maktima: synonymous with innovation, wonderful materials, fine workmanship, and generous mentoring. Here, the unusual combination of stones give off a sleek, urban vibe.
The palette of fire and ice is separated by a narrow band of 14-karat gold and surrounded by a circular border of pleated silver. The inlaid stones are raised above the surface, held in a bezel of similarly pleated silver.
The misty blue of chalcedony complements the fiery rosarita (a byproduct of gold mining ), sparked by the golden gleam of the channel, and the gold attachment to the silver bail.
Esthetics are married to skillful metal work, here. But wait, there’s more! There are two pendants in this one piece: reverse this yin/yang side, and there is a completely different design.
On the other side, all-over textured silver forms the base for a constellation of glittering, applied gold water spiral symbols, triangles and little circles, all raised above the surface.
These surround a beautiful, round Peruvian opal. This luminous stone has an other-worldly, pale turquoise glow, with yellow and greenish hints around the edges.
Sophisticated, opulent, dramatic, and totally gorgeous, this pendant evokes tradition in a totally new-millennium way.
The celebrated master jeweler has done it again – combining artistry, skill and exceptional materials, all on the same high plane of quality.
