Rare Natural Abalone Paua Shell Pearl with Diamond & Coral in 18k Gold
I am originally from New Zealand and when I found this amazing natural Paua shell pearl I was delighted and proceeded to design and make this pendant. I am afraid I can't remember the exact weight of the pearl but it is approximately 15 to 18 carats with great lustre and has not been drilled. I have put a gold tip on the point of the pearl to protect it with the top of the pearl held in with the design which also features an unusual early transition mixed cushion cut diamond that weighs .38 carat and is VVS clarity and F color. The design also has natural red coral on the front and a filigree feature on the back. The chain also hold two small feature diamonds and a moveable sizing option loops at 20, 18 and 16 inches.
For those who understand pearls this is a marvelous and beautiful find.
The piece weighs 9.5 grams including the chain.
