We stayed near Star Pass in Tuscon, Arizona. I saw more Saguaro cactus then I had ever seen in my entire life. One evening, we followed the highway up to the pass where two mountains converge. The highway swept between the mountains.
To the west was the evening sky, sun setting orange and gold. Above, a twilight sky, stars rising, stars twinkling in the deepening blue. Evening was beginning, headlights came on, headlights sweep the back roads and sweep up the sides of mountains. This was the wild west I dreamed of when I was a kid, of course back then I was on horseback not in a car.

Mandarin Garnet: Found in Namibia in south west Africa 25 years ago, a new discovery in 1995.
I’m a jeweler, every dozen years or so a new gem discovery occurs somewhere on Earth. Generally, it’s not a big deal, sometimes the world is flooded for ten or twenty years with the new gem. Then it is gone. It becomes an historic footnote. We miss it when it’s gone. We lament its loss and we know that we were remiss, but by then it’s too late. In the midst of its rush and availability, we ignore and dismiss. This is one of those gems, a gem capturing golden light for just a moment…our setting sun.
We sent an email introducing Sunset at Star Pass to our email insiders and sold out in 26 hours. Even we were surprised. The first six were sold at a special price, set by our partner who made these (if you’re not on our email list, you should be. Sign-up at the bottom of this page).
We can make more Sunset at Star Pass Necklaces; the price is $1,885 and will take approximately 8-weeks. Give us a call. We are accepting orders. Your card will not be charged until we ship, and shipping is always free.
And yes, you’ll have it in time for Christmas!
