Details of This Jewel
A part of Paolo Costagli’s Ombre Collection, the 18k Yellow Gold Blue Sapphire Pendant Necklace radiates beauty like the perfect smile. This gold pendant necklace has a 16-inch chain and a sapphire pendant measuring 38mm long. A design of bezel-set oval blue sapphires and the signature Brillante motif, the sapphire pendant on this 18k yellow gold pendant necklace is called Sorriso --which translates to smile in Paolo Costagli’s native Italian. The Sorriso’s sapphires are of a brilliant blue color and have a combined weight of 2.9 carats.
The Ombre Collection was inspired by Paolo Costagli’s Tuscan summers by the shore. Enamored by the colors and the movement of the Mediterrenan Sea during the summer months, Paolo wished to capture its beauty using sapphires of varying hues and precious metals. The collection carries a range of sapphires of exceptional color, all picked by Paolo himself. Using a reverse-set technique, he was able to bring out the best of these stones in terms of color and brilliance. The result is a collection of modern jewelry pieces that any woman would find a delight to wear.
Scoring 9 on the Mohs scale, the sapphire is one of the hardest gemstones. Its remarkable reliability has made it popular among jewelers, designers, and collectors alike. Originally thought to exist only in a deep blue color, the sapphire is actually available in a beautiful range of hues. Rare finds from Kashmir are a highly-saturated medium blue, while sapphires mined in Sri Lanka are more brilliant in tone sometimes even turning out violet. Also called the Stone of Wisdom, the sapphire is said to be the jewel of those who wish to learn and of seekers of the truth. The sapphire’s characteristic blue ray is believed to bring forth mental acuity and even healing. In both the Greeks and Buddhist histories, wearers of sapphire have were said to achieve enlightenment in their endeavors.
