Women's Metallic Gypsy Spark Necklace (14k Rose Gold)

  • Details

1909" is a new collection of jewelry, inspired by antiques and handmade in NYC. In the V&A Museum's jewelry collection, there's a child's ring from the 14th century with star-shaped points radiating from a central gem. Inscribed inside are words "This Spark Will Grow", which is a lovely sentiment of hope for the beginning of a life or journey. This necklace was inspired by that delicate piece. There's another (possibly apocryphal) historical reference here: centuries ago, rich merchants' wives were afraid to travel through the countryside while wearing their piles of jewelry, because gypsies would come along and snatch stones right from their settings. A smart lady asked her jeweler to set her diamond deep down in the ring, with no prongs, so it was flush with the metal and therefore thief-proof. Voila! The "gypsy setting" was invented. Each 14k gold disc measures about 1/4" wide and holds a. 03 carat diamond. The chain, also 14k gold, is 16" long. About)).
