Vibrant, eye-catching and with a free-spirited aesthetic, this one-of-a-kind Polly Wales sapphire and gold pendant necklace exudes a playful, feminine and modern vibe. Using her signature, innovative and non-traditional technique of casting stones directly into the metal, Polly has encrusted the surface of this 18K yellow gold disc with a rainbow of multi-shaped sapphires. The perfectly imperfect result allows some of the stones to show through the surface while others have completely disappeared. This Ourika pendant was inspired by the bold shapes and colors found in hand-made Berber tapestries, distinctive tribal patterning and antique Persian archery rings. The pendant hangs from the center of the 18K yellow gold chain.

LONDON - Polly Wales studied Fine Art Sculpture before following her passion for jewelry and retraining at the Royal College of Art. Combining her skills as a sculptor, her love of traditional casting methods and her craftsmanship, she began to create one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Using sapphires, rubies and diamonds cast directly into rich gold, the end masterpieces resemble natural gem encrusted forms or sparkling geodes split open. This unorthodox approach to jewelry design has created a new and exciting niche in the world of fine jewelry design.
