Hi Tas - At the present moment the Lapidary Journal gallery page has
the wrong description accompanying the necklace image, but I believe
it will be corrected soon.
This piece was one of my entries in the AGTA Spectrum 2004 Awards.
The center stone of the necklace is a phantom quartz cut by Bernd
Munsteiner, which I received as a gift from my friend and mentor,
Alan Revere. It came with the challenge for me to make something
spectacular with it. It was a very inspiring assignment!
The correct description is: Reflecting Pond necklace (c) 2003 140
grams 18 karat red, white, and yellow gold, Munsteiner faceted quartz
87.43 carats, red spinel 5.35 carats, blue sapphire 1.35 carats
Thanks for the many compliments on and offline, from all those who
have enjoyed seeing this piece of jewelry.
