That is truly sensational! With spouse's home-cut stones no less.

Loved the documentary aspect. Can't wait for Season 2 =)2

Actually these stones were NOT cut by my husband - demantoid rough (and specifically Russian rough even more so) is very very very difficult to find. I just meant that we had spent a fair amount of what might have been my "jewelry projects" money on buying gem rough instead, so I hadn't had a new piece of jewelry in a very long time. :)

Wow that's mind blowingly beautiful. I thought from original post where you say it is hard to find demantoids in larger sizes, I thought the whole pendant would be smaller. Those are sizeable demantoids!
Thank you, partgypsy, but actually these demantoids aren't all that big. I suppose they're a decent size for top-color Russian origin, but the biggest garnet in this pendant is 4.5mm and most of the others are 3.8mms except for the tiniest one. I do own a larger demantoid, a 1.06ct 6.1mm, but it was not used in this pendant. I'm still deciding whether to put the big one in a ring someday or sell it instead.

What an incredible design, the journey of construction was wonderful. So few folks take the time to do this and it is so much fun to see.

It's awe inspiring, I must say! Congratulations, wear it in good health.

In case you haven't spent enough money, I found these incredible earrings in the GildedLane shop on Etsy ;-): They would be perfect with your pendant.
