I’ve had this baroque pearl for at least 20 years, because this soulful thing was patient enough to wait to be worn.
The pearl is like an iridescent cloud in motion, and the dendritic quartz is damn-near perfect, with shimmering dendrites that shift from black to steely gray, with warm tones of gold and light.
It’s got 14K yellow gold prongs on a hand-built Sterling frame, and for the pearl, a cast limpet shell with accents of 23.5K gold beneath the pearl and on the reverse. The two are connected by a rivet of 18K and 14K gold, so the pendant is not a swingy thing so much as it is a statuesque one.
14K yellow gold rings connect it to an 18” blackened Sterling cable chain with 14K hand-forged hook closure.
