A Pendant that Keeps Your Pet Close to Your HeartPublished May 15, 2009
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then how many quantify a silhouette? To jewelry designer Vicente Agor, those shadowy figures are priceless. So, he creates charming gold pendant necklaces from them - specifically of pets! Using digital photos provided by customers, Agor carves silhouetted shapes into a circular, rectangular or oval-shaped 18-karat gold piece, producing delicate keepsakes to last a lifetime. A one-inch pendant retails for $1,100 ($1,280 with an 16-inch 18-karat gold chain), and keeps warm memories alive forever.
