*The Countess* Necklace – gold and blue lab-created Ametrine gem, flashy light gray Labradorite and fine yellow and purple Sapphire full micro-faceted briolettes securely wrapped with 14k Gold filled wire. I use my own wire wrapping technique, which allows me to display the focal stone in a best possible way. As it usually happens, I had these wonderful gemstones for quite a while. Because of their beauty I did not want to just use them in the first simple project, so they were sitting in a box waiting for their time. One day I picked the main 2 focal stones, created the frame…and stopped… I was seeing the necklace in my mind, but it was only after I got these drop-dead-gorgeous Sapphire briolettes when everything became clear. 🙂 I named in The Countess, because of it’s regal appearance. The pendant is 2.75″ long measured with the bail The chain is 18″ long and closes with hand-crafted hook and eye clasp This is a wonderful piece that will make a great gift for someone you love of a perfect addition to your unique jewelry collection. FYI: What is Gold Filled: Gold Filled is a semi- precious metal designed to perform like 14K gold. The exacting process used to produce this metal is done by the precision positioning of a solid layer of 14K gold bonded to a base metal through heat and pressure. This solid layer of 14K Gold is 500 times thicker than electroplated products. Unlike electroplated or fashion jewelry, which tarnishes, Gold Filled enhances the user experience because it is actual gold that is in contact with the skin. Like all precious jewelry, it should be cleaned regularly with a jewelry cleaner specifically formulated for fine Gold Filled jewelry. Regular cleaning will insure its natural brilliance and luster for a lifetime of enjoyment. All my orders ship within 24 hours from the payment receipt in a gift box.
