Antique Diamond Carved Drusy Agate Geode Skull Pendant Necklace

About

An absolute one of a kind, you will certainly never see another like it. The circa 1890 pendant is made of 10kt yellow gold and silver and is set with app. 6 carats of antique cut diamonds. The magic of this jewel lies in the expertly carved skull. For this masterpiece, a drusy agate geode was painstakingly sourced, and carefully chosen for it's color and crystal formation. These stones form with a natural, crystal lined cavity, however finding the right one is no simple task. Look at the last two images to see the stone before it was carved. The next step is the positioning and the carving of the stone in order to achieve the fantastic details. Note the added crack in the side of the skull and the internal crystal formation. The result is a blending of the finest craftsmanship from two different time periods.
