Bellarri 18K "Venus" Pendant/Brooch

Brand new and just recently retired, this is Bellarri's latest iteration of their popular and long-running "Venus Collection".

The enhancer/brooch, style G721/M, is a piece that you need to see in person to appreciate because the way the gemstones are set in the front makes it look like a 3-color array. But each of the three front settings is a mult-gem cylindrical design made up of multiple gems and colors. The top setting features peridot, green tourmaline and citrine. The middle setting features citrine, red garnet, rhodolite garnet and amethyst. The bottom setting features amethyst, iolite and blue topaz. So the color presentation that your eyes see depends entirely on whatever your viewing angle is.

On the sides of the piece you'll find Art Deco style settings of peridot, citrine, and garnet in a 2-3-2 arrangement, on both sides. Total gemstone count is 10.13 carats. Separating the front settings, and running around the sides of the pendant, are 12 points of F/G color VS diamonds. It's all set in solid 18K yellow gold. It measures 1" tall x .75" wide, and is a full .35" thick (not including the rear hardware). On the back you'll find an opening bail wide enough to handle 3mm thick cords and chains, and 4mm wide Omegas. There's also a pin so this can double as a brooch.
