27. The Lady
Elegant necklace of two queen conch pearls at 45.71 carats (total weight) and a fine quality 1.00 carat trillion cut Colombian emerald in 18 karat gold setting and chain.
Inspired by Marcial de Gomar’s wife of 53 years, Inge, “The Lady” beautifully captures the elegance and grace of the feminine and the harmony of the emerald and conch pearl, the two rare gems that are intimate partners in Marcial’s life. The speedily diminishing numbers of queen conch, which presently leaves about one pearl in every fifteen thousand conchs, portents an even greater paucity of these gems in the marketplace of the near future. This incredibly rare, one-of-a-kind suite of snow and lavender color queen conch pearls adds further to the uniqueness of the Marcial de Gomar Collection at an extraordinary combined size of 45.71 carats accented with a fine quality 1.00 carat trillion cut Colombian emerald with marvelous green-fire, all artfully set in a simple contemporary 18 karat yellow gold Marcial de Gomar design that truly shows off these magnificent and rare pearls.
Accompanied by GIA Report 1186154012 of February 21, 2017 (Emerald) and GIA Report 2185154011 of February 21, 2017 (Pearls).
Note: Due to the inability of current technology capturing the blue green hues and light dispersion in emeralds accurately, digital and particularly print images, do no justice to the true beauty, color and fire of Colombian emeralds. These magnificent specimens truly need to be seen with the naked eye to be appreciated to their full extent.
