I asked an Artist what is beauty?
He said "Harmony."
I asked a Preacher what is beauty?
He said "Beauty is in the heart"
then a butterfly passed by and whispered
"Shhhhhh....you will find it in a flower."
If you ask me, then all the beauty resides in a beautiful jewelry piece design.
This gorgeous pendant is a diamond inside a pearl. How unique could this be?
Pearls are known for the classic designs that never go out of style. I believe that every lady should own a pearl piece, you can never go wrong with a black dress and a pearl necklace. This fact does not mean that pearls can not be set in a non-classic design and also look great.
This specific pendant is like a "speaking pearl piece", it says "Beautiful, Elegant, and Unique".
Stay tuned for more information about the process of creating this "Beauty"...

For more than 4000 years, Emerald has been the premier gem and the most valuable of all jewels. If you are born in May, how lucky are you to have Emerald as your birthstone!
One of the most famous Emerald pieces is the "The Chalk Emerald Ring".
The superb clarity and deep green color of the 37.82-carat Chalk Emerald ranks among the very finest Colombian emeralds. According to legend, it was once the centerpiece of an emerald and diamond necklace belonging to a maharani of the former state of Baroda in India.
It originally weighed 38.40 carats, but was re cut and set in a ring, where it is surrounded by sixty pear-shaped diamonds (totalling 15 carats), by Harry Winston Inc. The ring was a gift to the Smithsonian Institute by Mr. and Mrs. O. Roy Chalk in 1972.
