Amulet Necklace, medium round Pendant, 3 Diamonds, 16-18″
Amulet Necklace, medium round Pendant, 3 Diamonds, 16-18″ made by Gurhan. The Amulet Collection is one of Gurhan’s most enduring and loved gold jewelry collections. Named for the talisman that Gurhan wears close to his own heart, amulets hold an important place in Anatolian culture, where it was common to consult magis who would read your fate and prepare amulets to wear to protect you from its fickle hand.
The key design feature of the Amulet Collection is that it treats gold as its own “stone” by setting hand-hammered gold into gold bezels. The amulet elements range from petite to bold and feature small accent diamonds. Amulet styles are timeless, wearable pieces of gold jewelry that will become your ‘go to’ classics.
So what is special about 24K Gold?
It’s Pure! The metals contain no additives or alloys to detract from its natural beauty. Gold is commonly known in karat weights of 22, 18, 14 and 9. To achieve these various karat weights, another metal is added or “alloyed” to the gold, diluting the purity of the metal. For example, 18K Gold is, by weight, only 75% gold with the balance being some combination of silver, copper or palladium.
Gurhan is renowned for pioneering the revival of pure 24 karat gold jewelry. Before Gurhan, pure gold jewelry had not been made since ancient times.
