Core Necklace by Paloma Sanchez Silver Jewelry Design Award Winner 2023

Core Necklace

Core is a handmade, one of a kind, necklace with two silicon specimens from the Swiss Apls holding a Sri Lankan natural pink sapphire core. The design features 18kt melted-looking gold accents and an 18kt gold chain. The round brilliant cut Pink Sapphire 2.5cts acts as the centerpiece of the necklace, carving a space for itself between the two silicon specimens as if the gem was breaking the earth to see the light. The design effectively captures the essence of the genesis of gemstones in a visually striking manner.
