Piece of the Week: Karma El Khalil’s ‘Lavender Waterfall’ Necklace
A mix of polished and faceted stones in an ethereal color palette constitutes this one-of-a-kind work.
In the “Lavender Waterfall” necklace, El Khalil highlights the beauty of lavender quartz to such successful effect that one may wonder why the material isn’t utilized more often.
Here, she works with the material’s most elite grade.
Set in 18-karat white gold, 67.99 carats of lavender quartz cabochons descend into an exquisite faceted, emerald-cut bi-color lavender quartz.
Accented with a single emerald-cut diamond, the 41.44-carat bi-color center stone seems to melt in color from lavender to light blue.
El Khalil’s masterful stone placement creates a feeling of movement that makes “Lavender Waterfall” a fitting name for the one-of-a-kind piece.
With its soft, pastel color palette, this “Piece of the Week” would make the perfect accessory for a special spring event.
Priced at $44,000,it’s available at El Khalil’s longtime Los Angeles retailer Roseark.
