Echunga Butterfly Pendant
The Echunga butterfly pendant embodies the joy of Springtime in the Adelaide Hills. These exquisite creations dance with lemon and tangerine flavoured* coloured diamonds, white diamonds and luscious rubies. This pendant comes with an adjustable length chain which can be worn at 42cm and 45cm long.
The Echunga collection is inspired by the fabulous local mystery of the rare Echunga diamonds. Discovered at Echunga in the picturesque Adelaide Hills during the gold rush of the late 1800s, the true source of the original diamonds remains unknown to this day. Gerard appraised the original diamonds 1994 for the South Australian Museum, which sparked the idea for this unique collection. The origin of the Echunga diamonds remains a mystery, as there are no known Kimberlite pipes (which are responsible for the formation of mined diamonds) in the area where they were found.
Every coloured diamond in the Echunga collection is unique. Working with these exquisite natural gems has lead to the creation of a suite of one-of-a-kind jewellery. Key to each design is matching sets of different natural coloured diamonds to create beautifully unique jewellery. We use flavours as a helpful way to describe the colours of these very special diamonds.
