Award Winning Pendant 18k
This one of a kind pendant / pin was a first place award winning design at a regional Jewelers of America competition. It is completely hand fabricated starting out as a sheet of 18 karat yellow fold and bar stock of 14 karat white gold. The piece took over 50 hours to create. It contains 13 round brilliant cut Hessonite garnets totaling 2.64 carats and 12 diamonds totaling .28 carats along with two pinkish high luster freshwater pearls. The Hessonite garnets are set into 18 karat yellow gold bezels and the diamonds are set into marquise shaped white gold plates by bead setting and bright cutting. The top diamond forms the chain loop and folds down if the piece is to be used as a pin.
