A sweet and dainty minimalist pendant necklace, featuring an iridescent multi-colored coin shaped abalone shell bead, set in a 14k yellow gold filled double spiral wire mounting. The double spiral is reminiscent of a yin yang symbol and the design represents duality and balance in all things.
A dainty sparkling 14k yellow gold filled chain with spring ring clasp completes the design. Worn alone or layered with other necklaces, this makes a great staple piece for everyday wear.
This necklace is made to order, no two are exactly the same. Yours will be custom created for you with your choice of chain length.
-Necklace features a genuine coin shaped abalone shell bead which is multi-colored and iridescent. Both sides of these abalone beads are a gorgeous rainbow of vivid colors.
-Some are more dominant in blues and greens, some in golds and browns, some in purples and pinks. Each side of the same bead may show different dominant colors. Please allow for unique color variances and surface patterning as these are natural abalone.
-Abalone pendant is 10mm (3/8″) in diameter (not including top pendant loop, which adds about 1/8″) and 4mm (just over 1/8″) thickness front to back.
-Abalone bead is mounted securely in a 14k yellow gold filled wire setting that runs through the center of the bead and wraps up around the front of the bead to form the spiral design.
-Chain is a delicate 1.4mm 14k yellow gold filled cable chain with small spring ring clasp. These links catch light beautifully. *Please Note* This chain is quite sturdy for it’s delicate look, but as with any fine chain, should be handled with due care.
-Choose your desired chain length from the first drop down menu. (Necklace in photos is 16″ length).
-These are hand formed and each one has slight variances and it’s own subtle features, but will remain true to the design shown here.

ABOUT GOLD FILLED JEWELRY
Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, which must constitute at least 5% (1/20) of the item’s total weight, mechanically bonded to sterling silver or a base metal (such as jeweler’s brass). Gold-filled items are 5 to 10 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 15 to 25 times thicker than gold electroplate, making it much more valuable and longer lasting because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film as on plated jewelry which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Most gold-filled is 12kt or 14kt gold-filled (I use 14kt for my pieces). Gold-filled does not de-laminate or peel like plated or “dipped” products. It is tarnish resistant and does not tarnish as readily as silver. Many find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. However, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday wear. To clean gold-filled it is best to use mild soap and water.

Very delicate and beautifully made. I gave it to my daughter to wear for her virtual college graduation, and she loved it.
