Ruff Goldsmiths: Necklace Heliodore (golden beryl) and 18K gold beads
Necklace constructed of Heliodore (golden beryl) crystals and 18k gold beads strung on 49 filament steel stringing wire.
Beryl forms in the earth in hexagonal crystals. These crystals of golden beryl, also known as Heliodore, have been polished on each face, drilled and made into beads. John Ruff constructed hexagonal forms and cast them in 18k gold to build these gold beads for the necklace.
