Immerse yourself in splendor with our Kinich Amulet. Named after the revered Maya sun god, Kinich Ahau, this pendant is an embodiment of celestial beauty and timeless craftsmanship.
Crafted from solid 18kt gold, the pendant takes on the shape of an octagon, measuring 1" wide, reminiscent of sacred Maya geometry. The Maya culture held a deep reverence for celestial elements, and opals, like the one featured in this pendant, were considered creations from the heavens, symbolizing life itself.
Kinich Ahau, the sun god, watched over the Maya people and illuminated their path with his radiant light. In honor of this divine connection, this pendant showcases four peachy 2.8mm oval sapphires at the cardinal points, echoing the rays of the sun.
Delicate gold bars, reminiscent of sacred Maya symbols, grace the sides and bottom. The Maya people were skilled astronomers and mathematicians, and this pendant pays homage to their understanding of the cosmos.
This pendant features two layers that echo the opulent pyramids the Maya civilization. The top layer cradles a breathtaking 6.4 ct orange Mexican Contraluz opal, held in place by square prongs at the same corners as the sapphires. The opal's shifting colors evoke the celestial wonder of the sun god's radiant light.
The second layer is adorned with intricate granulated pyramids, reminiscent of the sacred architecture found in Maya temples. The bail, standing at about 12mm tall, features granulation along its edges and pyramids, symbolizing the connection between the earthly and the divine.
A tube-set 3mm red diamond with rutile inclusions graces the bail, adding a celestial touch, much like the sun god's powerful presence. The Kinich Amulet is a modern relic inspired by the ancient Maya's deep reverence for the cosmos. Wear it as a symbol of beauty, legacy, and the eternal connection to the heavens.
