This is a beautiful 18k yellow gold Crownwork® pendant with four orange sapphire center stones and pave diamond and orange sapphire surround in oxidized silver. Oxidized silver has a beautiful historic feel for jewelry ( think Austro-Hungarian empire ) and is a wonderful contrast to gold. It looks rich and strong and as a setting material it’s soft and easy to bezel stones in deep.
The bales on our pendants/charms have a beautiful etching detail on them, they give the wearer the ability to wear their piece on different chains or use them as a charm on a bracelet. They are designed to sit at the front of the piece so they won’t snag your clothes. Orange Sapphires range from light pastel oranges to vivid orange reds due to their blend of red and yellow hues. They usually come from Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
The pave diamonds add a beautiful elegance and sparkle to this pendant. A very precious gemstone, diamonds take billions of years to form deep within the Earth’s crust under conditions of intense heat and pressure that cause carbon atoms to crystallize, forming diamonds. They represent purity, harmony, love and prosperity and is the traditional wedding present celebrating sixty years. It is the birthstone for April babies and the zodiac stone for Sagittarius.
