roman lariat necklace
A delicate, hand made chain necklace with a bezel-set Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline pendant and pearl dangling below. Each link of this chain is hand-formed, shaped, planished and woven using a classical Roman technique dating to the first century.
This Paraiba crystal is old stock from the original mines in Brazil (now closed) and shows beautiful color zoning and electric flash. There is only one Paraiba tourmaline mined for every 10,000 diamonds.
