This is a beautiful sugilite and 18k solid gold pendant. The gemstone is top grade with classic bright purple color. It is cut into a high-dome “flame” cabochon giving the piece a rich look and feel.
Sugilite came primarily from one mine in South Africa but that mine is no longer producing. Material like this is just not available anymore unless purchased out of someone’s collection.
The gold work is simple yet elegant with a single row of tiny gold balls around the bezel. The bale has some extra detail with a row of gold balls down the front. It is a small-to-mid-sized pendant that is just over 1/2” wide and about 1” tall (including the attachment bale).
