The blend of mineral and gem has always interested me. The juxtaposition of gem and mineral elements always surprises me when the pieces work together. The inch and a quarter glacier-blue aquamarine crystal is tapered, creating a design element without parallel. This is the focal point of a very eclectic jewel. The basket-like bail is set with sparkling diamond, sapphire and aquamarine which seem to float in the air. The crystal is hinged so that it will contour to the body and balance perfectly. Wow! You’ve always wanted to wear an icicle; now you can.
