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 Mystic Sunrise Topaz. The pendant measures 23mm x 14mm (7/8" x 9/16").
SUNRISE MYSTIC TOPAZ: This beautiful sunrise/sunset colored stone begins as natural white topaz. It then undergoes an environmentally friendly process called “vacuum deposition”, or “diffusion” treatment which creates the lovely multi-colored effect. Different colors emerge as the stone is moved - from orange to pink to yellow and lavender - much like the colors in a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Overall, it could be described as coral.
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.
