Anthony Kim 18k Gold, Sterling, Enamel & Diamond Modernist Pendant
* * SOLD * *
A whimsical modernist pendant by goldsmith Anthony Kim. This jewel is precisely executed and almost wildly experimental, designed with four sections that sit at different angles, like a folding screen. Two of these sections hold enameled panels— one describing a forest scene with a dry tree, a sprouting tree, and a clutch of mushrooms, the other is a field of bright blue enamel that holds an island of 10 diamonds. Diamonds are pave set in white gold. The center section of the pendant, and the section that functions as a wide bail, are made of many, carefully arranged 18k yellow gold wires— in the center panel the wires come together in a concave, basket-like form. The bracing on the backside of the pendant allows it to sit on the chest at an ideal angle in wear. Signed A. Kim, '74.
