This seven strand, peridot and diamond necklace incorporates top quality peridot beads supported by 18 carat gold spacer bars. In the central ‘grain set’ gold bar is a square cushion cut peridot, which is secured by shortened ‘grain set’ gold bars.

Underneath is a grain set gold ring from which hangs a princess cut diamond, supporting a natural pistachio Tahitian pearl drop with a gold pavé set pearl cap. The necklace is knotted onto a gold clasp.

This necklace is based on the history of the priestesses in ancient Egypt (such as Cleopatra) whose necklaces had religious implications. Cleopatra wore beautiful peridots and emeralds – so ‘alive’ at night that it was (in the ancient world they were called ‘Evening Emerald’).

CUSTOM MADE TO ORDER. Price will vary depending on the price of the stones.

Each Jane Magon piece is hand crafted and unique.
