Sterling silver pendant plated with 24k gold (vermeil) inspired by patterns found in Moorish tiling. I have been fascinated by the way these motifs have been taken up and evolved by other decorative arts movement, through Arts and Crafts to Art Deco.
I loved finding a uniquely extravagant setting to embed some fascinating gemstones within the design. There are eight marquise gems set flush into the points of the design, using a combination of channel and claw-set, while the central gem is offered upwards in an unusual eight-prong setting.
The pendant is 4cm in diameter, with a 5mm central Swiss Blue Topaz and 6x3mm Peridots.
The pendant is shipped with a matching heavily gold plated sterling silver snake chain, 24″ length, made in Italy,
