Behold, the grandest sputnik I've ever had! This design was popularized in the 1950s with the launch of the Russian rocket in 1957, which began the space race. This large pendant is 16 grams of brushed 18k gold, stamped for Italy and the designer Uno A Erre.
The jeweled accents are a combination of translucent and opaque synthetic stones which give the effect of Chrysoprase, Blue Chalcedony, Turquoise, Coral, and Amber.
The stones are in excellent condition and the pendant is in perfect shape, especially considering its age!
