We still miss the late Henry Rosetta, who was a wonderfully creative and versatile jeweler, as well as a lovely man.

But, we still find a piece, now and then, that had escaped attention until now, so some lover of intriguing jewelry will be really fortunate.

This pendant is typical of his work: an unusual stone in a graceful shape, placed in an organically formed setting of sterling silver.

Deep, rich, royal purple sugilite is the stone. The large oblong needed no embellishment but a narrow, rounded silver frame that contrasts elegantly with the wine-dark stone.

At the top, bottom, and both sides of the silver, it is chiseled into a row of parallel, vertical lines – rainfall symbols. Rain is very good luck in the high desert.

Deceptively simple at first glance, this is a sophisticated blend of tradition and a “new” stone, turning it into a splendid, modern pendant.

It will embellish any beads, heishi, or collar since there is a shepherd’s hook on the back that slips easily over any and all of these.

Vintage in age – 198os, most likely – and equally vintage in price; handsome is every way.
