Caged 18k Armillary Necklace

Regular price $1,045.00

Hand-fabricated entirely starting with 18k gold straight stock, three concentric circles rotate around and within each other on two different axes. The inner most circle holds a 7mm natural, undrilled quartz sphere in four dual-sided prongs. The frame has been brought to a high shine.

In the Victorian Era, it was believed that the light play of the undrilled rock crystal sphere was a tiny spirit trapped within. Just as the 19th century was a time of innovation and spiritualism intertwined, in this also there is a grain of science. Quartz acts as a natural lens, focusing light to create a crisp, inverted image of the scene behind it. It will also project a pin point of dancing white light. This pendant was envisioned with orbital paths, globes, and armillaries in mind and is fabulous to fidget with. Reminiscent of traditions and forces both scientific and sentimental, the graceful design complements the movement of light in the quartz sphere to perfection.

The pendant measures approximately 20mm (about 0.80 inches) across and can be purchased on a 16" or 18" 18k gold diamond cut cable chain or as a pendant only, to be strung on your own chain. If you'd like a different style or length of chain or an alternate stone, feel free to reach out to the studio. ā€‹
