  • GARNET AND DIAMOND PENDANT AND CHAIN IN 14 KT YELLOW GOLD

Garnet and Diamond Pendant and Chain in 14 Kt Yellow Gold

$999.00

Product Description

The name garnet is derived from the Latin word for pomegranate. Early discoverers of these beautiful red crystals found the color to be similar to pomegranate seeds. Garnet is believed to induce passion, fire and energy and bring good luck in love and relationship. The dark red color of the garnet gemstone in this necklace, along with the contrast of the 3 near colorless diamonds and the yellow gold setting will deliver all that, and more!

Gordon’s Design Notes: In looking over my jewelry offerings, I concluded I needed to add some yellow gold pieces to the necklace and pendant jewelry category. After considering my options, I decided the quickest and easiest way to accomplish this was to acquire some pieces already made by another designer. For years, I admired the gemstone cutting ability of Ben Kho, who has won numerous gemstone cutting awards. While in Tucson this year, I looked him up and specifically looked for necklaces and pendants set in yellow gold. When I saw this pendant, the excellent cut and deep red color of the garnet spoke to me. I thought Ben really brought out the beauty and passion of the garnet! Being set in 14 kt yellow gold made it perfect for what I was trying to accomplish. As a bonus, I also found a peridot necklace set in 14 kt gold, which I added to my collection.
