Ishtar Silver and Gold Sparrow Pendant by Sylva & Cie
1 in stock
Back in the days before jewelers knew how to create or work with white gold or platinum, they would set stones in sterling silver for its white color backed by yellow gold for stability. Since sterling silver tarnishes over time, what we see today is a blackened or “antiqued” finish. Sylva and Cie uses this metal combination, as well as older gemstones, in order to create treasures that could be plucked from the Victorian era. This silver and 18k yellow gold sparrow pendant is set with 0.64 ct of single-cut diamonds and carries a dangling old European-cut diamond (0.25 ct) from its beak. Two tiny rubies are set in the sparrow’s eyes. Pendant has thick gold bail. Sold separately from chain.
