This 22k gold nugget pendent features a beautiful display of gold in its natural, unaltered state. The free form dimensions of the nugget are organic and poetic, highlighting the buttery gold and extraordinary crevices. The shape is bulbous, and the gold bubbles and undulates in its form for a molten look. The nugget is interesting on both sides; one side protrudes while the other is flat and lays smoothly against the chest.
A 14k gold rabbit ear bail allows the piece to hang from a chain. The nugget looks great on a necklace alone or paired with other charms.
Gold nuggets are formed by hot fluids flowing through cracks deep in the Earth’s crust. Weather eventually releases the nuggets into streams and bodies of water, where they are shaped by erosion and time.
The nugget is between 22-24k gold and is approximately one inch by a half inch. The bail is 14k gold and is approximately 4mm by 5mm. The pendant weighs 7.35 grams.
