I had this pendant made a few years back but was unable to post pictures of it. But now that I can, here''s a few. If I recall correctly, it''s a 5ish carat umba garnet cut by Gene. The setting was done by Peter Lees.

This was taken without a flash and makes the gold look pink when it''s actually yellow.

That's a beautiful stone, and I love that fun setting!

ETA I just checked out Peter Lees' website -- what wonderful innovative designs! Thanks for introducing me to this designer....

As soon as I saw that, I knew it was a Gene stone. He loves to do those funky cool cuts! Gorgeous!!

That is so nice. I really love the way the stone is held - it looks effortlessly beautiful.

Thanks all. I knew when I got the stone I wanted it set with as much of the stone showing as possible. When I came across Peter Lees via the AGTA Spectrum awards and saw this same design only with a 3 sided stone I knew it was the setting for me.

So unique. Do you have a back view of the setting? I''m curious to see how it''s done.

It''s tension set actually. The only place the setting touches the stone are at those five points. You can see the side view on Peter''s site here.

Thanks for the link. That''s exactly what I wanted to see; I was curious if the 5 "arms" met together at one point or if they met at a circle/star at the back.

Wow, try to ignore the fat, wrinkly neck. Also, my bathroom lighting makes things look a bit yellow.

Kismet,
Another curious question. Have you worn the pendant with the chain going through 2 "arms"? How does the look change?

You know, I don''t think I have. I''ll have to give it a try when I get home.
