Signature Margarida Pimentel Stamp, 19.2k gold stamp

Dimensions (due to irregular shape of this item the dimensions are approximate):

  • Ring (gold frame):  1 5/8”x 1 1/8”x 1 ½” or 4.1cm x 2.8cm x 3.8cm
  • Quartz: 3cm x 2.2cm x 2.8cm
  • Depth: 1.5cm

Style: Quartz is clear with what looks like layers of sand of small rocks inside.  It’s cut in a triangular shape and  is beautifully framed by a ribbon of gold.  Very unusual organic combination.  Designed by Margarida Pimentel, a known artist.  Made entirely by hand.  One of the kind unique piece.

Following is a exert from an article about the artist’s gallery written by Andreia White Tavares

Galeria Margarida Pimentel - Wearable works of art 

If Mother Nature wore jewelry, Margarida Pimentel is where she’d shop. Organic and abstract, this designer’s beautiful, 3-dimensional morsels of movement and flow are the kind of stand-alone jewelry that make a statement without saying a word. Each piece is superbly crafted entirely by hand and is either one-of-a-kind or of limited edition. All are made from gold and silver (the real deal, not just plated), mostly brushed metal and many incorporating precious stones or pearls.
