Sterling silver pendant necklace, 'Flicker of Blue' (India)

Like a twinkling star seen in the dying daylight, this teardrop-shaped pendant with a starburst design from India's Babun Dey subtly glints and gleams; it hangs from a rolo chain necklace with a lobster claw clasp. The sterling silver's finish composed of brightly shimmering and darkly oxidized tones sets off a motif filled with braid work and small beads. In the middle is a cabochon composite turquoise stone in a bezel setting.
