  • Particulars:
    • The pendant measures approximately 1 1/4 inch long by 3/4 inch wide, with an attached matching jump ring adding about 1/8" at the top.
    • The bezel setting is just over 3/4" long and approx. 9/16" wide, with the visible slightly rounded dome of the brick red stone 5/8" in length and 1/2" across.
    • As seen in the last two photos, the back is stamped: "Sterling Hand Made"
  • Miranda says:
    • The workmanship is very good, and the cabochon of excellent quality. In terms of craftsmanship, the piece does not appear to be the work of a professional jeweler - more likely it is a unique design handcrafted by an independent ( indie ) artisan. Whether more pendants of this same design were created, I do not know.
  • Condition:
    • The cabochon is like new, with no chips, scratches or natural imperfections.
    • Its colors, streaks and striations are typical of the stone, ranging from deep dark oxblood to warm brick red with spashes of light gray-mauve.
    • There are signs of wear to the metalwork: 
      • Suggestions of antiquing or natural oxidization on the front surface and around the outer base of the bezel.
      • Scratches on the back.
Note: The chain shown in a couple of these photos is a vintage sterling silver rope bracelet. While it is not included with the pendant, you can see it by clicking this photograph.
