Peridot & Diamond Necklace (Pendant & Chain) in 14 Kt Yellow Gold

SKU #N-9
(You save )

Peridot crystals occur in a very small color range; from yellowish green to pure green to greenish yellow. Colors which evoke images of spring and summer. Picture a warm, sunny spring or summer day when you’re surrounded by the yellow-green colors of new growth; flower bulbs popping from the ground, trees budding and lawns of freshly cut grass. The award winning gemstone cutter, Ben Kho, used a unique concave cutting style on the peridot gemstone which gives the appearance of blades of grass. As the pendant moves, you can see the blades moving to and fro in a gentle summer breeze. Add to this the crown of three near colorless diamonds, the 14 kt yellow gold mounting and the 20 inch 14 kt yellow gold chain and you’re ready for a summer garden party. NOTE: If you already own the perfect chain to go with this piece, it’s also available as a pendant alone.

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. I contacted him to see what he had in the way of necklaces and pendants set in yellow gold. When I saw this necklace, I was immediately attracted by the unique cut of the peridot. I thought Ben’s creative cutting style made this a truly unique necklace which I wanted to add to my collection.

Price: $1550 NOTE: Price includes the chain. If you already own the perfect chain, it can be purchased as a pendant only. Go to Pendant category sort and click on item P-9.
