I love this fan shaped Rhodochrosite cabochon! I set it with a fine silver bezel onto a sterling backplate then added a soft, brushed finish. The framing of the stone features a stippled finish, which I added for a bit of sparkle. As shown this piece comes with a Sterling Silver, oval, Rollo chain which is Adjustable up to 18”. A hand forged silver clasp and a 4mm Moonstone dangle complete the chain. Given that this particular Rhodochrosite is a “Feature Piece”, I also designed and created a substantial sized hidden bail that accommodates any length of my hand made Loop in Loop chain.
This stone was co-designed, cut and polished by George Barris in our own Lapidary Studio.
