Story

Chrysoberyl remains an underappreciated gemstone. Very popular with the residents of the Iberian peninsula during the 18th century, mines in Brazil unearthed these gleaming beauties.

These gemstones were adapted for use in a variety of stupendous jewelry. Often referred to as chrysolite, most examples are rare today and collectors have latched onto its infinite array of mysterious colors (from pale yellow to soft, puce greens), its high refractive index (how shimmering it is) and its relative rarity.

Chrysoberyl’s refractive is similar to ruby and sapphire, and very high compared with many other gemstones. Simply put, it exudes fire and brilliance.

Spanish examples tend toward the grand. The English, however, placed a more understated spin on the large and opulent Spanish and Porgutuese jewels. Here is a fine circa 1820s Georgian example; the gemstones resemble green "diamonds" for their sheer brilliance. The stones embellish a pendant set into 18k yellow gold.

Edges around each gem possess tiny prongs along with beads of gold all around the perimeter. The six gemstones total 3.75 carats that appear to glow from within their clear interiors.

This pendant comes in an antique green velvet heart shaped box that was refitted to hold the pendant.
