About this design:

I loved this pendent from the first glance; I don’t know what this stone is and I could not match it in any design until few days ago, I used Swarovski crystals to match the shine in the stone then added some tourmaline, smoky topaz and onyx and this necklace was created!


Indian pendent? [I bought it from India], Tourmaline, Onyx, Smoky Topaz, and Swarovski Crystals

    No the bail came with the pendant! It needs soldering and I can’t do that!
