Superb Spessartite Garnet and Gold Necklace
By Carter Malouf, Private Jeweler
Dallas, Texas

This unique, hand-crafted choker necklace features ninety cabochon spessartite garnets from Tanzania, weighing approximately 382.28 carats, which are superbly matched for graduated size, their vivid orange color and their excellent clarity. Originally purveyed by the renowned Idar-Oberstein house of Wild & Petsch (which took years to gather such a matched set, and had only this one), the gems were then mounted for the owner by well-known Dallas society jeweler, Carter Malouf. The superb metalwork is completely flexible in its design and very comfortable when worn. Each cabochon is backed with a pierced setting which provides strength but allows light to emerge from behind the stone. Mounted in 18K yellow gold. Monogram signature. Length 17 1/2 in
