This exceptional pendant which can also be worn as a brooch is instantly recognisable as a Henn of London classic, being one of a highly desirable series, each one bespoke, variations on a playful and sophisticated theme.
These multi-functional and directional pieces are immensely popular with clients. Their refined aesthetic is fused with an elegant versatility: they can be worn either way up, with the featured gemstone at the top or dramatically punctuating the base of the design, as well as doubling as brooch or pendant.
Here we have a stunning 20.21 carat oval peridot from Pakistan, set in 18ct yellow gold surrounded by a flowing spiral of brilliant pavé set diamonds. The sense of movement in this unique jewel is enhanced by the finest hand engraving and some truly exceptional enamel work.
The stylised shape of an imaginary feathered wing swirls elegantly out, as if unfolding from the signature gemstone. Its form evolves into a multitude of greens, with touches of contrasting blues through to golden yellows. This masterfully detailed and sensitive enamelling perfectly reflects the richness of the peridot and its graceful setting.
Dynamic and delicate, this is a true collector’s piece.
