Pomegranate Pendant




Artist Statement:  This beautiful pendant was designed by me (Natalia Moroz) and crafted by the jewelry designer Sergey Zhiboedov (my husband). For ages, pomegranates have symbolized love, fertility, and abundance. The pendant is shaped as a half of a ripe pomegranate, and its left side is set with 16 garnet cabochons (3x5 mm each). On the right side of the pendant, there is a relief of a naked woman. The back of the pendant is textured to imitate the rough pomegranate skin. The pendant is made of sterling silver and has been oxidized to bring out the details. The pendant is stamped with the jeweler's logo (SZ) and 925 (silver)
The pendant is 1.25" (31 mm) wide, 1.5"(37 mm) high, and 0.4"(10 mm) deep. Wide bail (chain opening). The chain is not included.
