Antique Gem Encrusted Pendant Charm
Picture a scene from a black and white Hollywood film on location in an exotic land. Inside a massive tent the desert winds softly blow lengths of silk into an amazing number of fascinating forms. Fabulously luxurious furnishings fill the interior with rare and extraordinary items and materials.
Suddenly the screen flashes into a kaleidoscope of color and focuses upon a simple box covered in shagreen leather. Centered on the top is an orb of 18k yellow gold. The glinting metal picks up the sun’s reflection and your breath quickens from the sight within. You manage to recover to come to realize that this bauble is covered with precious natural gemstones from around the world. In all, seven (7) diamonds, five (5) rubies, four (4) sapphires and four (4) emeralds are set over the sensuous round curves of the golden orb.
Deceptively simple…yet the amount of labor required to polish each of those gems is gargantuan and the level of expertise necessary for determining where to place each stone and how to precisely set them reaches a master’s skill. All in the making of a pendant charm…
