Unusually romantic for Antonio Pineda, this is one of his sweetest designs that can easily be worn by a young lady which is not always the case with his jewelry. There is something very gentle and delicate about this piece but traces of Antonio’s “punch” can be discerned if one looks really closely – in the night blue / purple of the goldstone that truly resembles a night sky with its myriad of sparkling specks; in the modernist layering of the heart pendant and, of course, in the single, glistening pearl that accents it. Please also note the geometry of the graduated in length bar links that form the chain. Sheer perfection…
Size/Weight: 16 3/4″ long (wearable); pendant is 1″ wide with a drop of 1 3/8″; 30.6 grams
