"Better than pictured"
The prasiolite or green amethyst stones were greener than pictured, although this is a naturally light colored stone. The silver work is exquisite. And I have never seen stones mounted in quite this fashion. I am looking forward to wearing them. And I will look at the rest of his collection.
- Unusual setting and large dramatic stones
