Pillow Pendant in Sterling Silver with Rhodolite Garnet, Apatite and Mandarin Garnet
This art deco design is sort of a pointy rectangle (like a pillow shape, hence the name) with a double prong center that holds a 7x5mm stone, and two sizes of melees around it (close to 2mm in the corners and 1.5mm down the sides). The outer rim is finished with millgrain. I used a rhodolite garnet for the center and mandarin garnets and apatite on the outside for a colorful mix. The apatites are heated. The other stones are not.
The casting is in argentium silver. The casting service I use is certified green.
The pendant is 12x10 mm with the bail and it is 5mm deep.
You have the option of adding a 16 or 18 inch chain, or not use a chain at all.
Custom orders are welcome, but keep in mind that the labor for this style, especially setting, is expensive.
