SKU #P-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 and the 14 kt yellow gold mounting and you’re ready for a summer garden party. NOTE: If you don’t already own the perfect chain to go with this pendant, it’s also available as a necklace, including a chain. If you’re interested, go to the Necklace sort and click on item N-9.

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, I was immediately attracted by the unique cut of the peridot. I thought Ben’s creative cutting style made this a truly unique pendant which I wanted to add to my collection.

Price: $1425 NOTE: Pricing is for the pendant only. A chain is not included. If you prefer purchasing as a necklace including a chain, go to Necklaces and check out item N-9.
