Story

The worship of lapis lazuli as a precious stone is as ancient as early civilization. Never faceted, the gem is presented as a cabochon or in this example, with a beautiful flat surface.

The intense cobalt blue color is striking and the stones most prized (as this one is) are those lightly dusted throughout with a constellation of gold flecks of pyrite, no white or visible veins and of the deepest hues of azure. The ornate mount of 14k rose gold does justice to the provocatively rich blue of the lapis. Classically inspired architectural appointments grace the close back setting complete with fine details and expansive reeded shank.
