100 Carat Aquamarine Platinum and Diamond Pendant Tassle

$ 19,500
  • Description
    Carved Aquamarine Pendant with Sapphire Bead Tassel. Inspired by Egyptian and Sumerian rolling seals, this 100ct hand-carved aquamarine pendant was turned from a 200ct plus piece of rough, reported to have been mined in Kenya at the end of the 19th century. Kenyan Aquamarine is extremely rare and is characterized by its sea foam color. Examples in this size are extremely rare. Hand-carved in Germany by masters of the miniature, this crystal features two owls perched within gothic arches and inscribed in Latin with the words “aude sapirre” (‘dare to be wise’) and “amabit sapiens” (‘wise men love’). Suspended between platinum caps with leaf motif top and bottom and set with 48 diamonds weighing 1.31 total carats, suspending a tassel of graduated sapphire beads weighing approximately 6.00 total carats, and worn on a lovely midnight blue silk cord. This is truly a unique piece designed to inspire its wearer to be ever conscious of wisdom and love Provenance Present Owner A Connecticut Lady Betteridge Jeweler's 117 Greenwich Ave Greenwich CT $28,000
