Love Always Heart Pendant

Gold Necklace

Created by Nancy Troske
Say "I love you" with this granulated heart in solid 22k gold, paired with a small rose-cut ruby heart set in 22k gold. The pendants come on an 18k gold, 18-inch wheat chain.

Troske creates these pendants using the ancient art of granulation, employing the same methods as goldsmiths from the distant past. Granulation takes years of practice using the purest of metals. Each tiny granule is made by hand and making enough for one piece of jewelry can take weeks. Each granule is then placed one by one on the piece with a tiny brush. The piece is heated almost to the melting point. At that precise moment, the granules fuse and become one with item being granulated. Look at museum collections featuring ancient jewelry and you'll recognize this technique. 22k gold won't dull or tarnish. Cleaning requires simply a gentle dip into soapy water; pat dry.
