“Starlight Orb” Sterling Silver Labradorite Lariat Necklace
Inspired by the 1920’s Art Deco “Pools Of Light” jewelry designs, is the “Starlight Orb”. A luminous genuine Labradorite orb dangles and reflects light beautifully as the focal point of this “Y” style lariat necklace. Solid sterling chain and solid sterling findings complete the design. A nod to the golden age with a modern minimalist aesthetic, this necklace is versatile, adjustable and so much fun to wear alone or layered with other necklaces.
Labradorite, prized for it’s vivid rainbow of color play and it’s light refraction, known as Labradorescence, 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.
This necklace is made to order, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you with it’s own luminous labradorite orb.
-Lariat features a genuine polished 10mm round labradorite stone orb, center drilled.
-Labradorite orbs are a mid-grey body color, with visible color flashes in most indoor and outdoor lighting. Color flashes, or Labradorescense, are mostly blue, green, gold or a combination of those colors. Labradorite is mildly translucent, some light can pass through, but it’s actually the light reflection (light bouncing off of inclusions in the stone) that creates it’s mesmerizing and luminous color play.
-Labradorite orb is mounted on a solid sterling silver torch fired headpin which runs through the center of the orb and then wraps fluidly around both sides. Bottom of headpin is left darkened from torch firing to add contrast and a contemporary edge to the design.
-Necklace chain and all findings are solid sterling silver.
-Chain is a solid sterling silver 1.5mm width cable chain with spring ring clasp, and solid sterling silver bead links which clasp can hook onto.
-Necklace is adjustable and can be clasped at the following lengths: 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″. The higher up the necklace is clasped, the longer the bottom “Y” portion becomes. Last four photos show necklace worn at all the length options. Total length of necklace laid flat from spring ring to top loop of quartz orb is 22″.
