The Catherine Window (and a winner!)

Inspired by my love of stained glass elements in the Gothic architectural style, The Catherine Window necklace features enchanting rich colours. The central gemstone is a jaw dropping AAA oro verde (or green gold lemon quartz) briolette, which has been surrounded by carved rubelite garnet leaves, faceted full drops of lapis lazuli, and teensy "mystic" quartz rondelles. Joined to a generous length of chain using the deepest navy Akoya saltwater pearls, the design is finished with a hand forged "s" clasp and a length of extension chain - with a lapis briolette as a dangle. The entire design was heavily oxidised and lightly rubbed back.

You can see more details of the Catherine Window necklace here.
