This charming piece is from the "Shield Maiden" Collection, a series of one-of-a-kind pendant necklaces, each designed with a complementary selection of gemstones, precious metals, and unique focals invoking talisman characteristics.
~ The focal of this piece is the framed portrait of three absolutely perfect watermelon tourmalines, each teardrop exhibiting the deep pink and green colors characteristic of fine watermelon tourmalines. They are framed inside a gold plated bronze abstract-shaped ring and attached to another gold-plated bronze component that resembles a gothic window. This in turn is suspended from a white pyrite cube topped with an AAA grade garnet and attached to a vermeil bail.
~ The primary chain used here is gold-filled and hand-wired with 3mm spinel rondels. I inserted three stacks of garnets into the chain at the point where it connects to another gold-filled chain which runs around the back of the neck.
Necklace length is 26 inches and will slip over your head. Pendant drop is about 4 inches.
