This pendant was made with a piece of incredibly vibrant sugilite that I purchased, believe it or not, on eBay. I have been unable to find any more nearly as nice.
The metalwork consists of 24k gold fused to 20g sterling, then rolled flat, then rolled again with a sheet of saw-pierced titanium so that the pierced designs are embossed on the silver/gold. This raw material was then used to make the pendant, framed in 18k and accented with the sugilite (set in 22k) and a small diamond. It hangs on a 5-strand cable of silver and 18k.

Noel, I think that this a a very nice design and a great looking stone. But I believe that the stone is Cobaltian Calcite and not Sugilite. Sometimes photos play tricks with color but I see the color as pink and the surface texture to be that of Colbalto.
