Since 1920, renowned Italian jeweler Aldo Garavelli and his family have been creating stunning, everlasting jewels. From a quote made by Aldo, when speaking of women and jewelry, he said in part "The Art of jewelry making... One talks, writes or paints of Her, and exalts Her. And for us, who weave golden threads, joining them with precious stones, we search for her with our awl in the metal, we invent new things for Her every day, and nothing compares with Her beauty, nothing satisfies us... and we therefore continue our never-ending search".
This stunning diamond & green tourmaline necklace is one of those glorious pieces made of 'golden threads' and 'precious gems'. Made to sit so graciously along the neckline, radiating a brilliant green glow of awe & envy, this Garavelli-signed vintage necklace is a piece I've held in my personal collection now for multiple years. And now she's yours to admire.
Per the appraisal (picture 9), the natural green tourmaline measures 9.75 x 10.00 x 6.70mm heart-shaped with an approximate weight of 3.90cts. As you can see from the pictures, she is beautifully clean & free of inclusions, graded 'eye clean' with a 'good cut'. That cut allows that gorgeous green to flash with every twist & turn.
Surrounding the bezel-set tourmaline in 2 bead-set rows are 72 very fine diamonds totaling approximately 0.70ct. They grade excellent VVS-VS clarity and F-G color, with of course, good cuts also. There is so much sparkle here!
The underside of the pendant, where you'll find the Garavelli hallmark, is detailed with cut-out hearts & swirls, allowing light to enter from the sides, maximizing brilliance in the gems. Then, taking the quality of this piece one step further, the chain consists of not just one, but two (a double row) 22 inch 18kt white gold chains. The chain length is adjustable with several loops/links where you can shorten or lengthen the necklace (from about 16-18 inches to the full 22 inches). A lobster-clasp secures the chains, marked with 750 for 18kt gold, and the total weight of the necklace is 9.60g.
Valentines or not, you don't need Cupid to win her over with this delectable & collectible necklace!
