This teardrop/pear shaped pendant features a genuine yellow emerald* set in a 6-prong sterling silver 'basket' setting.

The gem was earth-mined in Brazil and is 100% natural, meaning it hasn't been subjected to any heat, chemical, or radiation treatment processes to enhance its flawless clarity and well-saturated lemon yellow hue. It's a well cut stone too, displaying a smooth unblemished surface, neat proportions and symmetry, and fine polishing.

Unset, the gem measures 8mm x 5mm and weighs 0.70 carats. Set in its 6-prong sterling 'basket' bezel the pendant weighs 0.7 grams and measures 5mm (wide) x 14mm (high), including its fixed 'vee' bail.

The included chain is a variety of fine 'cable' chain - diamond cut, delicate and very sparkly. It was manufactured in India and measures about 1mm wide.

All-up the necklace weighs 2.2 grams and measures 18" to 20" - adjustable - depending on where you fix the clasp on the complementary 2" extender chain (see photo #5).

The necklace is presented in a hinge lid gift box lined with Japanese unryu paper (a handmade designer paper that contains strands of plant fiber for contrast and texture).

*About Yellow Emeralds ...

Also known as 'Yellow Beryl' and sometimes 'Heliodor', the yellow emerald is a sister gemstone to classical green, blue ('Aquamarine') and pink emeralds. All three are nearly chemically identical (Be3Al2Si6O18), containing only slight variations of trace elements that account for their different colouration : Chromium (in the case of green emeralds), Manganese (in the case of pink emeralds), or Iron (in the case of both aquamarine and yellow emeralds). The term 'Heliodor' - derived from the Greek words hēlios (sun) and dōron (gift) - is sometimes used to describe the palest, most subtle hue of the mineral.

Yellow emeralds were first discovered in Namibia in 1910. The gem is not often used in jewelry though because it is very rare and lacks the brilliance and fire of its super-sparkly rival, the yellow Sapphire. What yellow emeralds lack in spark however, they make up for with their stunning, super-saturated colour and their soft, velvety 'jello' luster that's unique to all members of the emerald family of minerals.
