This Cathy Waterman pink star sapphire and amethyst leaf necklace is utterly perfect for late summer.
It’s ready to sparkle over the filmy fabric of your light silk dress as you sip sparkling cocktails next to a turquoise sea. Or twinkle under the stars as you dance with a mysterious stranger on soft white sand. Or shimmer as you huddle in front of your air conditioner, drinking $6 Moscato out of a plastic cup. However you roll in late summer, it’s ready to be there with you.
This gorgeous piece is made of buttery 22 karat gold and set with an assortment of luscious, earthy-feeling pink stones. The leaf-shaped pendant is centered by a fantastic creamy pink star sapphire surrounded by pear-shaped amethysts and sprinkled with tiny diamonds.
You’ll notice that the setting holding the central star sapphire has delicately pointed diamond-set gold prongs: that kind of detail is pure Cathy Waterman, as is the graceful, organic feeling of the leaf pendant and the gradation of colors present in the piece. So light and airy, almost casual, despite its valuable components.
I would like to know how long it is. I’m imagining it as a slightly longer necklace, maybe 22 inches? The description doesn’t specify.
