1970s Gilbert Albert Watermelon Tourmaline Gold Pendant

Sculptural pendant necklace by Swiss designer Gilbert Albert. The 3″long pendant with textured gold in the form of stylized leaves holds a dramatically large slice of watermelon tourmaline. Accented with diamond “dew drops” . A smart and wearable piece of jewelry . Gilbert Albert, known for his innovative use of natural stones and materials is well established in the circles of jewelry design. A contemporary of Andrew Grima, Jean Vendome and Arthur King, he helped lead the way to the new and bold look we have come to accept as high style from the 1960’s and 70’s. Looks terrific on a neckwire, leather or chain. A great piece of modernist artist-jewellery.
