This amazing vintage piece is crafted in solid 14K yellow gold and set with a gorgeous HUGE natural Smokey Topaz that looks like a citrine, because of its beautiful yellow color. The pear shape (teardrop) gem measures 34 mm (over 1 1/3") x 22 mm, and is somewhere between 30 and 40 carats! It is clean, transparent gem with intense color and brilliance. And now for the most amazing part ... the stone has a gold stud set into a drilled hole near the top. This makes the stone extremely desirable and much more valuable, as the process is dangerous and requires amazing skill. And this stone shows the incredible technique at its best. It is totally gorgeous. And different. The pendant has a large 14K bale (marked 14KT twice). On its original 17 1/2" 14K gold chain (marked 14K). The chain is also gorgeous, with the look of two chains twisted around each other, and a width of 1.9 mm. Total weight of pendant and chain is 15 grams. Everything in mint condition. This piece is a true show-stopper!!! I wore it last night, and even a gem dealer remarked on its beauty and rarity!
