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

This piece comes from Bellarri's regal "Riviera" Collection, and Dawn and I call it "The Strawberry". This is the first of these that we've been able to offer on our site, but not the first we've seen - Dawn and I bought the first "Strawberry" we came across, about 3 years ago, and it has been a permanent part of our own little Bellarri collection ever since. We always hoped we'd come across another, that we could offer to our customers, and here she is.

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 2.35" tall x 1.55" wide, and weighs 19.2 grams. 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 "The Strawberry" next to a quarter coin, 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, as you can see on the tag in the photos.
