Jasper pendant necklace, 'Magic of Jaipur' (India)

"Crafting jewelry is a tradition in my family. My father has practiced this art for many years and I grew up seeing the beauty of jewelry," remarks artisan Babun Dey of Jaipur, India, also known as the Pink City. He designs a jasper stone and sterling silver pendant necklace which hangs from a rolo chain. The pendant's bubble and swirling line design is crafted in dark and light silver tones, and at its center is a bezel containing a cabochon jasper in a dark pink tone. A lobster claw clasp provides a secure closure for the necklace.
