Wendy Brandes 18K Gold Cat Lariat Necklace With Orange Sapphires and Opal

$18,000

About

Cat lovers -- this one's for you. This feline pendant was inspired by Wendy's love of her own furry animals, and specifically, by her first-ever cat, FitzRoy. FitzRoy broke the Internet when he and his favorite lounging spot -- a large fruit bowl -- debuted on Instagram (you can look him up -- @fitzroy_the_cat) and later were featured on Buzzfeed and The Dodo. Fitzroy is an orange tabby exotic shorthair, with chubby cheeks and a flat face. In jewelry form, he's depicted playfully rolling around on his back in one of his frequent "bowl poses" while playing with an Australian opal. 328 orange sapphires. 0.98 carat Australian black opal. White diamond eyes. 18K yellow gold, satin finish. Top chain measures 16". 3 1/2" vertical drop. Cat pendant is approx. 1" wide, 1/2" tall, 1/4" deep. One-of-a-kind. Made in New York City.

About the Maker

Wendy Brandes Jewelry

About the Designer: Jewelry design is Wendy Brandes’s second career. Wendy started out as a business journalist at the Wall Street Journal and CNN, later switching to pop-culture coverage during her tenure as managing editor of People magazine’s website. Her story-telling skills remain as strong as ever, but they’re now expressed in carat weight and grams of gold instead of word count. Wendy's “Fine Jewelry for Witty People" is distinguished by its stellar workmanship; warm, satin finish; hidden and symbolic details, including mechanical parts; and wry commentary on everything from history to iPhone addiction. Her award-winning 18K yellow gold collection -- featured here -- is inspired by fascinating women, and all designs are limited-edition or one-of-a-kind. Wendy has been featured in the New York Times, W Magazine, and British Vogue, and her jewelry has been spotted on Rihanna, model Bella Hadid and Britney Spears.
