The parure features huge rectangular window pane like rhinestones in a smoky quartz / charcoal color surrounded by pistachio pink rhinestones. Bold pewter tone roped and beaded settings with double prong tabs secure the smoky quartz colored stones. The brooch with it's concealed hook can be used as a pendant on your favorite necklace chain.
