One of a kind 14k gold filled genuine Labradorite pendant necklace. This necklace is meant to turn heads and make a statement. Free form in shape, it is somewhere between a teardrop and a triangle. It reminds me of a butterfly wing a little bit.
Vivid and stunning, this Labradorite stone displays a gorgeous array of orange, pink, purple, blue, green and gold tones. It has excellent light refraction and color play.
The stone is set on a hammered 14k yellow gold filled free-form backing with spiral detail and mounted in a very secure 14k yellow gold filled woven bezel.
This item is one of a kind, you’ll receive the exact necklace shown in the photos.
-Pendant measures 50mm (just under 2″) tall (not including the top loop which adds about 1/4″), 40mm (just over 1 1/2″) wide at it’s widest point, and 8mm (just over 5/16″) deep.
-The stone is a genuine untreated Labradorite, free-form in shape, with a vibrant array of orange, pink, purple, gold, green and blue color tones and excellent “labradorescence” or light play.
-All of the wire is 14k yellow gold filled, formed and shaped by hand.
-Chain is a 14k yellow gold filled 1.5mm width 24″ length cable chain with a hammered hook and loop clasp. It looks delicate but is quite strong.
-If you would like a chain length other than 24″ or an alternate clasp, please message me.
Labradorite is a mineral belonging to the Feldspar group, named after the Canadian province of Labrador, the classic locality of this gemstone. It is prized for it’s vivid rainbow of color play and it’s light refraction, known as Labradorescence.
Labradorite is considered to be a stone of protection, transformation, harmony and balance, enlightenment, and honest expression of one’s true self. It is said to strengthen intuition, impart strength and perseverance, and raise the consciousness of the wearer.
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.
