Nota del catálogo

This colourful and bright pendant which was later transformed into a brooch, follows the notion of auspiciously setting the stones representing the nine planets, each which has an associated deity. In this case, there are two sets of the nine stones around the outside of the pendant, both sets sharing the stone at the top and bottom of the circle.
