Bellarri "Riviera" 18K Multi-Gem & Diamond Pendant Enhancer

From Bellarri's gorgeous "Riviera" Collection, this enhancer should cost far more than it does given the size, gemstone count, labor required to create it, and gold content.

It starts with solid 18K yellow gold, and features 17.80 carats of all-natural earth-mined gemstones in multiple shapes, cuts and sizes. You'll find everything from blue topaz (in Swiss and London varieties) to iolite, amethyst to rhodolite garnet, peridot to green tourmaline, citrine to red garnet. All of those gorgeous pink, purple, and violet gemstones at the top are rhodolite garnets, with sprinkles of topaz and other stones mixed in for contrast.

Set in 18K white gold cylindrical settings are 8 points of genuine white diamonds.

The piece measures a full 2.4" tall x 1.55" wide, and weighs 20.5 grams (yes, these are hand-made, and this one is a little heavier than the last one, for those of you keeping track). It's not the largest Bellarri pendant we've ever seen - some of the $12,000 Marietta pieces are upwards of 3" tall - but it's surely one of the grandest. We included photographs of this next to a 25 cent Washington quarter, for size perspective - you can see that it dwarfs the quarter.

The bail does open, and it's deep enough for cords and chains up to 3mm thick, and omegas up to 7mm wide.

Retail was originally $6510, but we have it for under $2K. These older multi-gem pieces are getting so hard to find - don't sleep on this one.
