Elegant Simplicity with an ancient appeal.
This divine 18ct yellow gold hand crafted opal pendant has been created to reflect the rustic beauty of ancient jewellery found in archaeological digs, in particular Etruscan jewellery. The pendant is a one off piece that forms part of the Etruscan Collection. This beautiful pendant is made by Australian Fine Jewellery Designer, Tonya Gilbett, from her studio in Hobart Australia. The Etrusca Collection has been designed to represent the importance of remembering the past as being part of the present. The Etruscan civilization flourished in central Italy between the 8th and 3rd century BCE. The culture was renowned in antiquity for its resources and as a major Mediterranean trading power and the jewellers from this time were among the most exceptional in recorded history. Granulation was a common feature in Etruscan jewellery, a technique whereby small granules of precious metal are adhered to a surface of metal. This Etruscan pendant has a small detail of granulation on the gold attachment.
Tonya Gilbett Fine Jewellery is inspired by many things; ancient jewellery, the beauty of nature and the modern woman. This beautiful opal pendant takes some inspiration from minimalist design however with a deeper symbolic meaning of remembering the past as part of the present.
The Etrusca Collection is available in silver and 18ct yellow gold. This pendant is made in 18ct yellow gold and is strung on a blackened silver chain to create a striking contrast.
