Not for the faint of heart, this grand and impressive teardrop faceted smoky quartz rates as a 10 out of 10 in size, color and impact.
At 2 inches long and over 1 inch wide just for the gemstone, it weighs in at a staggering 89 carats with colors in the mink, fawn and umber ranges. Cut beautifully and with fine clarity, it is a marvel of the gemstone world.
Unusually, a hand-made 10k rose gold mounting serves as the perfect foil. Note the hand pierced cut-outs of leaves and organic designs that wend their way around the under-gallery.
Additional wire work and tendrils of rose gold add to its drama, allowing the pendant to rest evenly on the neck.
