A charming banded agate pendant in the shape of a scallop shell. Onyx has been cut with an artist's hand, accentuating the natural layers of stone to their greatest effect. Shades of deep coffee brown graduate into bluish grey into white. The center of the shell is set with a rose cut diamond measuring 3mm in diameter; each chain is set with a smaller rose cut diamond. Roughly 50 years later Cartier created a similar design sculpted in jade. This delightful pendant is striking and highly unique.
The shell and agate cabochon are backed in 14k gold. The two smaller diamonds are set in silver.
Measurements: 6cm long x 2.5cm wide at the shell. The central diamond measures 3mm in diameter, approximately. The agate cabochon measures 6mm in diameter.
