This is a stunning 14 karat gold, Kunzite and cognac diamond necklace. The eye-catching pendant hangs on an 18” woven chain. Both the pendant and chain are marked 14kt gold.
The gorgeous pear-shaped faceted kunzite is approximately 16.25 mm long and 9.50 mm wide; it weighs approximately 8.60 carats! The kunzite has a beautiful baby pink hue and good saturation. Kunzite are evening stones and should be kept in a closed box so the stone won't lose its color from UV rays. Although the color-fading effect is very slow, most people still prefer to wear kunzite jewelry in the evening to avoid exposure to sunlight.
Surrounding the kunzite are 20 graduated cognac diamonds. At the top of the pendant, the cognac diamonds are approximately 1.75 mm in size. The diamonds in the middle are approximately 2.25 mm in size. At the base, the diamonds are approximately 3.10 mm in size. The setting features an open back, allowing light to reflect beautifully. The total carat weight of the diamonds is approximately 1.25 carats. The pendant sits on a lovely 14 karat gold wheat chain that is 18” long. Together the chain and pendant have a combined weight of 10.22 grams.
