Appraised for $16,000 over a decade ago, this magnificent pear shaped, 29-carat emerald and diamond pendant is nothing short of spectacular. This will grace the neck of an elegant, sophisticated lady in charge. Its beauty is difficult to grace with words - I hope I captured its magic with the camera. Please note that those white marks on the emerald are just reflections of the overhead lights in my shop.
From the February 2000 appraisal:
"One stamped & tested 18KT yellow gold ladies hand assembled custom made pendant with a bezel set with a bright polish finish.
Thirty-five prong set round brilliant cut diamonds, measurements of 2.80 - 2.90 x 1.77mm (depth est.), approximate total weight of 35 stones = 2.82ct. Clarity SI-2, Color G, Cut Very Good-Class 1b.
