The large cabochon is a natural kyanite set into a pendant surrounded by a double row of natural, faceted sapphires. The term cabochon means a gem that has been polished but not faceted. The pendant, crafted in Jaipur India is sterling silver plated in 14ct gold. The pendant is 1 ¼ inches long (3 cm), 1 inch wide (2.5 cm) and 10 mm deep. It has its own bail, set with more natural sapphires.
The pendant hangs on natural ovals of cornflower blue, translucent kyanite beads (8 mm). A second strand of opaque kyanite ovals (9 mm) is a slightly larger bead.
An inky blue translucent stone of iolite beads (3 mm) adds a depth to the blue tones.
The blue stones have vermeil beads and spacers to add gold highlights to the necklace.
And lastly there is a rich strand of opaque, natural ruby cylinders (7 mm), from Mozambique.
A 14ct gold vermeil toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
The necklaces come, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
The necklace is 17 inches long (43 cm) with a 1 ¼ inch pendant drop (3 cm).
