This is a natural Pink Topaz – this is why it is lighter than the bright pink topaz more commonly seen. A very large oval gemstone – so I used a cage setting to balance the stone – and to allow the chain to go thru the setting – rather than behind on on top – for added security and less movement. The stone can hang either horizontal or vertical.
The silver is solid argentium silver – in this case I textured it with a magnolia leaf – from the tree in our yard. Both the top and bottom layer of the cage have this texture – so organic!
STRUCTURE * I Know * CLEAN LINES AND ANGLES – Inventive – Powerful – Bold – Connective
Argentium Silver is a high quality silver with germanium added. Argentium silver is whiter, harder, slower to tarnish, purer (nickel-free) and has a higher silver content of 935 (sterling is 925)
