Sodalite, Topaz, and Pink Tourmaline Figa Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
The figa symbol--a hand gesture with the thumb protruded between the pointer and middle fingers--has been around for thousands of years, representing a variety of cultural beliefs from different countries, such as: calling forth fertility, virility and good times; warding off the evil eye; and pretending to pull the nose off of a child (ouch!). This one has an uncommonly cool design. Carved from denim-blue sodalite with distinctive markings, it is adorned with a gold bracelet, gold nails and topped with a bright gold cap embellished with fine twisted wire. The cap is set on one side with a rose-pink cabochon tourmaline and on the other with a honey-colored cabochon topaz. A truly wild, wonderful, and intriguing collectible. Tourmaline weight - 4.60 carats, Topaz weight - 6.75 carats. Hand fabricated with 18K gold. The pendant hangs on a 16-inch 14K rope chain.
