Designed by Paloma Picasso for Tiffany & Co., this 18k gold spiral pendant necklace is a highly sought-after retired shape. A spiral of 18k gold with a rosy patina creates this mesmerizing egg-shaped pendant. The exterior of the spiral has a glossy polish, while the interior is an unpolished matte gold for an absolutely stunning effect. Part of the Venezia collection, the spiral is inspired by the glowing lampposts of Italy. The pendant hangs on a long chain that places the pendant low on the chest for a sexy and chic look.
