|Hand-carved Coconut Shell elegantly transformed into a Necklace decorated with Free Form Pearls, Tsavorites and Rose Cut Diamonds set in Black Rhodium Silver. The Necklace has ancient and classical look covered in 24K Gold Leaf.
The Coconut shell has been covered with 24K Gold leaf and supported at the back by Silver black Rhodium. The ancient Royal Households of Angkor Wat, Cambodia and Borobudur, Indonesia, wore pieces like these in heavy gold which made their ear loops drop and become very long. Today, nobody would wear such heavy pieces anymore which made Lotus Arts de Vivre looked around to find material which could replace the solid Gold. Our designers finally settled on carving the shells of coconuts thin, and on covering them with 24K Gold Leaf, they met the modern standards of comfort. A lot of craft is required to carve the coconut shells which are as hard as ivory and normal wood carving equipment does not work, and hence this necklace was carved by former ivory carving masters.
Then the Lacquering, Gold Leaf application and embellishments with Pearls and Diamonds which are ancient crafts with high know how, resulted in a truly royal necklace for the woman with self-confidence, replicating an ancient royal look.
