This pendant of creamy milk chocolate and bright, unreal teal chrysocolla is one that I’ve been dying to post. This is sure to become one of your favorites. Unique in so many ways, you won’t find anything like it on the planet. If you get up close and personal with this stone you will fall in love with it. (If I didn’t need to pay my rent, I wouldn’t sell it. But here you go. Now who is going to be the lucky one to say they own it?) Imagine the possibilities with your wardrobe; it goes with so many fabrics, patterns, and color combinations. Wear it bold or understated. It has unusual versatility. 

This stone is from my old, treasured stash of high-end stones. I’ve never had so much fun wrapping a stone than I had with this one. It was loaded with curves and challenges. I knew how it needed to be displayed—with the chrysocolla fully exposed—but creating a setting that could pull it off was something that took many sketches and a lot of problem solving. The shape of the stone is unique, the body of the stone has an unusually high dome, and it has an uncommon exhibition of colors. When I finally finished it I knew I had a piece de resistance. The graceful, curvy silver embracing the stone fully captures its character and makes it a wearable piece of art.

The lapidary who cut and polished this number had a fine eye for design and a knack for bringing out the best features of a rough piece of stone. I have never seen a stone like this so artfully cut. Another, less talented cutter, would have trimmed away the chocolate and this prize would have never made its walk onto the red carpet.
