Artist: Marty Key
    Three time winner of the prestigious AGTA Spectrum Award for colored stone jewelry design, Marty Key is internationally recognized for developing new cutting and setting techniques which contribute to the unique look of his jewelry. He uses an ancient form of inlay known as "intarsia" to provide a seamless continuity between gems and precious metal, as seen in his signature "Sonagiri" Tourmaline pendant. Sonagiri, literally: the golden peak, is a place sacred to devotees where they practice self-discipline and austerity in order to attain Nirvana. A rainbow of seven eye-clean Tourmalines - ranging in color from rubellite red, deep pink, hot pink, yellow, grass green, sea foam green and teal blue - have been custom cut and assembled into this unique work of art which is capped in 22K gold and strung on a 18K gold cable. The pendant measures 36.6 x 8.3 x 6.8 mm and the cable is 16 inches long. In excellent condition.

    Estimate: $9,000 - $11,000.
