De Beers 18K White Gold Quartz and Diamond Sakura Pendant

Sakura Rose Quartz and Diamond Pendant from De Beers

Hub probably had a troubled night. He knew that I was going to check out the De Beers Private Sale this morning. Which I did.

He asked me if I've bought anything. I told him that I've bought something gorgeous for around 40K just to see how he would react. Even as I said it I knew that I would be caught out quickly since where in the world could we find 4 least of all 40K to buy any jewellery in times like these?

Anyway, most of the pieces on sale today were quite loud and gaudy. Too flashy for me. I have small fingers for a fat person and can only carry off small creations.

But everything was sold out within 10 minutes even at such prices. I was among the first at the sale and chose a simple quartz and diamond pendant : 18ct white gold, rose quartz, 0,18ct diamonds. Reminded me of a lotus though they named it "sakura".

Hub looked relieved and said, "So you've managed to restrain yourself."

I can wait. Next year is our 10th Wedding Anniversary.

You have such great taste. It is a beautiful pendant!

Do you think you could give a heart attack to Sylvain with your expensive taste?

Hi Mu, if you think it's nice then it must really be nice. Thanks.

I've been psyching him up on the Asian love for jewellery, especially gold. And I give him a glass or 2 of good red wine almost every evening to help him keep his heart in good shape.

He knows that I do not have other vices and the stuff would go to his beloved daughter one day, so it must sweeten things abit for him. :-)

May I know the price of this beauty please?

Hi Anon, I fear that I cannot remember exactly how much I've paid for it and it's now in the safe. But one thing is sure, it cost less than 1000 euros.

I bought such a pendant from a person living in Paris, France.
However, she couldn't say exactly what the pendant is made of (except for gold and diamonds) :

Therefore, please, are you sure the flower - for the other parts - is made of quartz and not glass or else?

it would be great to let me know!
Thanks a lot.

Best wishes.

Sorry I missed this earlier. The pendant is made of 18k gold, quartz and diamonds. I bought mine in Paris too from De Beers.
