Delicate Vintage Black Star Sapphire Pendant
This petite pendant is really quite special! It is a sweet, simplified flower shape with a black star sapphire as the focal point and faceted white sapphire accents. The star sapphire measures approximately 6mm by 4.5mm and is set into a 14k yellow gold 5-prong mounting. The decorative leaf-like portion is also 14k yellow gold with a dense layer of sterling silver on top. The white sapphires are faceted to sparkle and refract the light which they do very nicely! They are set recessed into the metal with open backs which help them shine and is nice for cleaning purposes. If you look very closely, the leaves have some wonderful hand work such as milgrained edges and deeply carved grooves. The length of the pendant, including the 14k gold bale, is approximately 1" with the widest part of the leaves measuring 1/2" across. This is a lovely handmade piece of jewelry and such a perfect size. I imagine it being someone's most favorite necklace, the piece they wear every day!
Please note that the listing is for the pendant only. In the photographs I have it paired with an 18" 14k gold chain that is $60. If that one interests you just let me know! Otherwise I can help source any chain that suits your taste and budget.
