Zoltan David at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History has announced the acquisition of Zoltan David’s “Iris” necklace for permanent display. This necklace was an American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Award Winner in 2016. “Iris” will be on display in the Feldspar exhibit in early 2018. The centerpiece of this necklace is an example of a very rare shimmering white 35.63 ct. cat’s eye marquise cut moonstone from India. The necklace features 35 perfectly matched gem quality 5 mm cabochon moonstones that are iridescent blue moonstones with a total weight of 18.20 ct. All are set in a blue patinated bronze with pure platinum shaped inlay and ideal cut diamonds throughout. The reverse side of the pendant is engraved with, “By the light of a silvery moon, an ocean of life awaits your magical touch.” 

“Last year I became an American citizen and this year a piece of my work will become a part of the American culture, I am truly humbled.”
