    Pink Tourmaline, Gold Pendant, Paula Crevoshay
    The pendant from the Voices of Earth Collection features a carved pink tourmaline cameo weighing 26.29 carats, accented by a marquise-shaped pink tourmaline cabochon weighing 3.09 carats, set in 18k gold, marked Crevoshay. Gross weight 21.60 grams.
    Dimensions: 1-5/8 inches x 1 inch

    *Note: The cameo is carved by Elizabeth Beunaiche, a talented North American lapidary artist.


    Condition Report*: Designer: Paula Crevoshay
    Gem Type: Tourmaline
    Gem Average Clarity: Fair
    Gem Shape: Carved, Marquise-shaped Cabochon
    Gem Count: 1 - 25
    Overall Condition: Very Good
    Notes: Marked: 18K CREVOSHAY. Lovely rich pink tourmaline looks fantastic in the 18k yellow gold. Carved tourmaline has significant clarity characteristics, including fractures (two of which can be seen on the figure's face) and chips to bottom corner. A shepherd's hook allows for an additional piece to be suspended from the pendant. There is also a mechanism on the reverse that would allow the pendant to be used as a clasp--would likely require additional work by a skilled jeweler.
    Paula Crevoshay: Paula Crevoshay graduated with honors from VCU in Richmond Virginia and won a full scholarship to the University of Wisconsin where she earned her Master of Arts degree in 1977. She launched her first collection of one-of-a-kind art jewels in 1981. Her work has been shown at such museums as the Smithsonian and the Carnegie, among others, and can be found in many important public and private collections.
