The lively, completely natural Rosetta Stone featured in this pendant is from Chihuahua, Mexico. It’s lacey patterning combined with colors of peach, orange, cream, white and maroon matrix are astounding! It also boasts a quartz crystal pocket! For me, this piece is reminiscent of an outdoor grand orchestra under a star filled summer night. If a stone could speak, this one would do more than that, it would belt out an orchestra!
I am a lapidary artisan as well, and hand cut all of my high quality cabochons. I gave this charismatic beauty a thicker bezel along with a deep beveled cut which lends poise. The Rosetta Stone took a beautiful polish as well. I mounted the stone on solid .925 sterling silver with a fine silver sawtooth bezel setting. I gave the metalwork a brushed satin finish, with an oxidized black patina. The overall styling is classic and timeless.
The pendant is a nice size. A few of the listing photos shows it paired with a 0.24″ wide sterling silver omega necklace just to give a good visual reference as to how the pendant hangs and what it would look like paired with something similar. The pendant does not include a chain or necklace. It would look fantastic paired with a sterling beaded necklace, a multi suede, a thick leather or a classic omega necklace.
This sofisticated beauty is sure to ignite interesting conversations and gain compliments!
You will not be disappointed in this sleek, one of a kind, contemporary Southwestern designed piece!
