Pendant Sea Creatures, Lapis, Diamonds, 18K
This pendant is 2" high by 1-1/4" wide and it weighs 16.8 dwt. or 26.7 g. It is formed with a large, unpolished lapis of deep blue color surrounded by a frame of 18K yellow gold. There are sea creatures applied to the stone: a shell at the bottom, a starfish with diamond center at right, a crab with sapphire eyes. At the top is a whimsical octopus that forms the bail with diamond eyes and two diamonds in the legs. The octopus also functions to hold the stone in place at the top and bottom. Incredibly, I have found no maker's mark on this extraordinary piece, and I suspect that it may have been produced by a special jewelry artist. I have tested the gold and guarantee that it is 18K. The piece dates to about the 1970's and the condition is excellent.
