Rainbow Hematite and Iolite Drop
A glistening spectrum of colors is the focal point of this striking pendant. The featured gemstone is a trapezoid-shape Rainbow Hematite from Brazil set in warm 18kt yellow gold. Above the Hematite, we crafted a fan-shape arch with vertical ribs against a matt finish background. We then cap set a small acorn-like Iolite and suspended it from the base of the pendant.
From the side you can see the depth of the smooth bezel walls that follow the shape of the Hematite. The bezel walls are thick and sturdy to best protect the gemstone.
The bail is fashioned behind the fan-shape arch with two round wires. The opening of the bail is large enough to accommodate neck wires, round chains and even omega chokers.
The rear of the pendant is as nicely finished as the front. Note the upward sweeping bail wires which form an inverted "V" behind the arch.
We repeat the inverted "V" of the bail wires in the cross-bar supporting the back of the Hematite. The Hematite is backed with onyx to support and protect the rear of the gem.
The cross-bar shows the Bijoux Extraordinaire registered hallmark (BEL) and the precious metal mark for the purity of the gold (750). All fine jewels should be marked by the maker and with the purity of the precious metals.
