Burle Marx - Black Onyx, Rutilated Quartz and Sterling - Pendant
Here is a Large and Dramatic Pendant by Haroldo Burle Marx of Brazil. The following is a quote taken from Worthpoint on an auction for a Burle Marx Pendant:
"Haroldo Burle Marx is without question one the greatest jewelry designers the world has ever seen. His gold pieces are timeless as is the design of this silver pendant. Burle Marx customer list looks much like a famous social registry. We sold pieces to Cicely Tyson, Madame Ferragamo, Placido Domingo, Natalie Wood, and the Empress of Japan, just to name a few. We also have a cross that was designed for Pope John Paul II, but was never presented to him. Over half a million dollars worth of Burle Marx jewels were on display at The Houston Museum of Natural Science for two years. Burle Marx was featured in Connoisseur Magazine, Town and Country, Vogue, U.S. News & World Report, and The New York Times."
This Superb Pendant is Everything you'd expect from a World Famous designer. We especially like the high dome cut of the cabochons. We also love Rutilated Quartz. Interesting on it's own in indirect light, it comes to gleaming life in direct light. Signed for Burle Marx and stamped 951. Tested for Sterling Silver
