8.3ct Large Genuine Emerald Necklace - Sterling Silver - Jali Filigree - Oval - Handmade - p171156
This large Jali filigree pendant is solid sterling silver and is set with a genuine "raw" Emerald that was mined in India.
Jali filigree is a rare silversmith's art. Very few jewelers in the world produce this type of jewelry.
The design is drawn by hand on the silver and then it is cut out by hand using the tiniest little hand saw. The jewelry is then polished to a mirror finish.
This is a time consuming art.
The Emerald is a natural, earth mined Emerald from India.
The gemstone is opaque with dense inclusions and organic markings.
India is famous for its deposits of Emeralds. The Emeralds from India form with aluminum inclusions. The aluminum gives the gemstones white streaks that sometimes look sparkly in light.
