When Mr. Sugi found this gem in Japan, he named it after himself so we have sugilite, a truly exotic and beautiful discovery. The pendant is built around one of the best examples I have ever seen. I mixed it with the rhodolite garnet because the complementary colors were too hard to resist. The clean lines of the 18K yellow gold, the alluring shape and the 24K gold border of the center stone all work in harmony. The overall piece is slightly under 1 ½ inches long. Is it a one-of-a-kind? Oh yes!
