We call this the Sweetheart Pendant. The design seems classic -- might be made by a Navajo silversmith in the seventies or maybe it came from the Mediterranean, given the high-quality semi-precious stone. A teardrop gemstone at its heart is so timeless.
At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry we feel that the stones are the stars of the show when it comes to jewelry. Small and balanced embellishments to enhance the natural beauty of the semi-precious stones ... never to overpower.
I love this Sweetheart Pendant in Rhodochrosite. It's like a highly beautiful, stretchy taffy of all the pinks you want -- showing up in organic stripes. Each piece of Rhodochrosite used for this necklace is unique -- each one more beautiful than the next. Classic style of American metalsmithing -- Great Pink Rhodochrosite in just the perfect size to have some impact but still remain dainty and easy to forget you're wearing it.

At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
