I gave a draping loop of argentium silver a soft twist, added a tapered bezel at its base, and separated the head into halves to cup the stone from either side in the open setting. I crafted these simple lines carefully, and reflected the simplicity of the piece in the way the stone is set. It all comes together gracefully in a pendant of a pleasing scale.
Shown here with a 6.0 mm peridot. The pendant measures 23mm x 14mm (7/8" x 9/16").
PERIDOT: As the popularity of lime green continues to grow, so does the youthful appeal of this citrus-hued gem. It is August’s birthstone and often used to celebrate the 1st and 16th wedding anniversary. Treatment: Natural.
The pendant is shipped with a protective pouch via First Class Mail in a recycled gift box.
ARGENTIUM SILVER is a special alloy, verified as the most tarnish resistant made, but an occasional simple wipe with a soft cloth, and tucking the piece into the provided, protective pouch will further enhance its natural aversion to tarnish. Eco-friendly - recycled silver.
