A large, mid 20th century pendant composed of a group of natural, baguette cut emeralds, each set into an individually hand-fabricated bezel and arranged in a staggered fashion that calls a crystal cave to mind. This pendant has an otherworldly, futuristic vibe; it feels both organic and geometric, because of the carefully organized arrangement of gems. Metal is 18k yellow gold. Emeralds are various lengths, with vibrant color and typical inclusions. Bail is gem set.
