Bellarri "Alessandra" 18K Yellow Gold, Madeira Citrine, Smoky Quartz & White Diamond 1 of a Kind Necklace + Matching "Romantica" 18K YG Citrine & Smoky Quartz Ring

From Bellarri's wonderful "Alessandra" Collection, this necklace is a one-of-a-kind. We've sold several of the P789 series "Alessandra" necklaces and they were designed to feature citrine, amethyst, and a multi-gemstone array. This particular "Alessandra" is the only one Bellarri has ever created featuring citrine and smoky quartz.

And it's not just any citrine - the big stones are Madeira citrines, which bleed red from their ends. We captured some of this beautiful bleeding effect in our photos. And it may not be obvious in the pictures but Bellarri created a gradient effect with the sections of round citrine that extend from the sides of the neck back to the clasp - the round citrines start out a beautiful sunflower gold and by the time they join the solid sections of the necklace at the front of the neck the citrines are tangerine orange.

The big chunks of smoky quartz are just as beautiful - they're crystal clear and deep in color, like chunks of chocolate. And it's all set in solid 18K yellow gold.

Just the two large stones at the center of the necklace, both flat-tabled, scalloped-edge "exploding-center" Mystique cut stones, combine for a total of 29.55 carats. The remainder of the stones combine for another 25.35 carats, giving you a total of almost 55 carats of all-natural, earth-mined, made-by-mother-nature gemstones. Capping the presentation, and sitting in little cylindrical settings of 18K white gold, are 24 points of genuine F/G VS white diamonds.

Neck size is 16", and it has an easy-release clasp at the back, with safety catches, for easy placement on your neck.
