Henry Dunay Peridot and Diamond Gold Link Collar Necklace


Striking and powerful, this brushed gold chain link necklace with peridot and diamonds by Henry Dunay is a marvelous example of the artist’s creative vision. Centering on a heart-shaped peridot, the pendant is encrusted with round-cut diamonds, marquise-, and round-cut diamonds. The concave spade-shaped links feature Dunay’s signature Sabi finish, a richly-textured brushed surface that amplifies the jewel’s sculptural quality.

Henry Dunay is perhaps most widely known for his signature Sabi finish. Inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, which emphasizes simple elegance, Dunay’s Sabi motif consisted of finely hand-etched lines in brushed gold that required remarkable precision and skill to create.
