18kt Gold Pendant with Rainbow Hematite

Mysteries of the Sphinx II

A dramatic 18kt gold pendant featuring a rainbow hematite,  amethyst and apatite.

Inspired by the mysteries of ancient Egypt,  this pendant features a relatively new gemstone recently discovered in Brazil - rainbow hematite.   This naturally occurring gemstone offers a shimmering rainbow of colors which arise from an irregular surface of nooks and crannies covered with glittering micro-crystals.   The effect is very reminiscent of the iridescent effects achieved by L.C. Tiffany in his art glass.

Above the rainbow hematite is a bezel-set faceted amethyst.   To either side,  two neon blue apatites are set in flames of 18kt gold.

This beautiful pendant can be worn on a round snake chain or as a slide on a wider necklace,  such as a domed-omega choker.   A truly versatile piece of jewelry,  the cleverly hidden bail is designed accommodate a range of necklace thicknesses and lengths.

Cost: This striking pendant has sold.  Please visit the  Bijoux Original Gallery  where we feature many other beautiful pendants and rings.

Or,  we can custom create a pendant in this style for you using the gemstones and precious metals of your choice.  Please give us a call (603 624-8672) or send us an email,  to discuss gemstones, design options and costs.


Of course,  this beautiful pendant can be created with other gemstones.   Instead of rainbow hematite,  the triangular drop could be iridescent pyrite,  rutilated quartz,  titania coated drusy quartz,  drusy uvarovite garnet,  drusy blue lace agate or 22kt gold coated black drusy  For the accent stones, consider amethyst and pink tourmalines or any combination of the following: apatite,  peridot,  sapphire,  ruby,  emerald,  diamond,  iolite,  citrine or the many flavors of garnet (rhodolite, tsavorite, grape, etc...).   Both faceted and cabochon gemstones could be used.
