The scrolling motif of the 18k gold setting creates a beautiful frame for the orb to sit in. The stone is capped with floral, fluid circles on both top and bottom, revealing the lovely attention to detail put into crafting this piece.
Gold Sandstone is known as the Stone of Ambition, and is considered to bring creativity, focus, and the ability to achieve one’s goals. It dates back to the 17th century and, according to legend, was invented by monks experimenting with alchemy.

The pendant measures 1” from top to bottom; the orb itself measures approximately 3/4” in diameter. The oval bail is 4.6 x 7 mm. The pendant weighs 13.25 grams.
