Treasure of the Sea: Natural Pearl Necklace
Beauty untold reverberates in a pendant necklace of platinum-topped 15k yellow gold. Exuding gracious style classic curves are set with thirty-two (32) diamonds and eight (8) natural saltwater pearls. With a total weight of 3.04 carats the diamonds light up the tracery of precious metals and the fancy colored pearls crown the top with subtle highlights.
Symmetry is perfected with a natural foliate form surrounding a centered antique cushion cut diamond of .95 carats (H-I color; SI2-SI3 clarity). An array of five (5) rose cut diamonds each set in trefoil elements are placed as a surmount. A champagne briolette diamond (.80 carats, .95 carats) suspends east and west of a grand baroque natural saltwater pearl (13.7 mm length by 10.9 mm wide by 7.5 mm depth)**. The pearl's contours and sheen resonate with creamy white with overtones of iridescent purples, blues, bronzes and pinks.
The main body of the pendant in bow form is embellished with twenty-three (23) rose cut diamonds. Six (6) old single cut diamonds appointing the cap of the baroque pearl for an additional .34 carats of diamond weight. Dotted within are four (4) small white natural saltwater pearls and a trio of rare natural black pearls – one deep bronze and two purple pearls (2.5 – 3 mm) make their presence known. A platinum link chain finishes with finesse.
