Dimensions: 1-5/8 inches x 1 inch
*Note: The cameo is carved by Elizabeth Beunaiche, a talented North American lapidary artist.
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.
