As you can see the first working designs Barbara prepared have changed as she got under way with the 18ct Palladium White Gold wire work, here is another shot of the highly reflective material, prior to setting and finishing up.

In the previous graphic I mentioned the Kunzite notes Barbara made to the team, in gemmological terms perfect cleavage describes the way gem material can part or separate along its own natural growth lines, this is primarily a consideration for the gem cutter but also a caution for the setter to be  mindful when applying pressure to the gem.
