This pendant is so beautiful…the pictures really do not do it justice! Suspended from this fabulous 18 karat yellow gold pendant is a large amethyst briolette measuring approximately 3/4 inch in length and is considered to be light in hue….the faceting on the briolette is very well done. The cap on top of the amethyst is set with diamonds….18 full cut round brilliant diamonds for an estimated combined total weight of approximately 0.25 carats. Set in a straight line are 3 floral “links” with a yellow sapphire in between each “link.” The first flower contains 6 round full cut green garnets measuring an AVERAGE of 1.70mm in diameter each and are considered to be a vibrant yellowish-blueish green in hue. The second flower is set with 6 rubies measuring an AVERAGE of 1.70mm in diameter each and are considered to be a vibrant red in hue. The third flower is set with 6 blue sapphires measuring an AVERAGE of 1.70mm in diameter each and are considered to be dark blue in hue. In between each flower is a round full cut yellow sapphire…all 3 sapphires measure an AVERAGE of 1.70mm in diameter each and are a vibrant yellow in hue.
