Fire, as old as time itself, connects us with our distant past. The colors of fire are presented in a statement necklace of blackened silver and 22 karat gold granulation; carrying this ancient technique into the modern world. This piece is part of the Smoke and Fire Collection and features a faceted Carnelian teardrop with a 22 karat gold cap. Over 4500 years ago, Sumerian and Egyptian craftsmen were making jewelry set with this beautiful orange gemstone.
The ancient technique of granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one. 22k gold won't dull or tarnish.
The necklace has a handcrafted solid 22 karat gold clasp and is 19 inches long.
