“Ascension” One of a kind 14k rose gold filled tree of life pendant necklace on a genuine Chrysocolla stone.
This Chrysocolla is oval cut and shows a beautiful array of deep and light teals as well as rich earthy brown speckles of stone matrix. The stone is set on a hammered 14k rose gold filled oval backing with spiral detail and mounted in a very secure woven bezel which flows beautifully into the tree design on the front of the stone. A delicate looking but very sturdy rose gold filled chain completes the design.
The tree is designed in such a way that it almost appears to be climbing up the side of the woven bezel, set high above a vista of vibrant land and water. It reminds me of views I’ve seen of trees that grow on the sides of mountains and cliffsides, almost impossibly poised in such an unlikely place, and reaching ever upward and outward. This was the inspiration for the name “Ascension.”
This item is one of a kind, you’ll receive the exact necklace shown in the photos. Necklace has been photographed from various angles in both indoor and outdoor lighting to to attempt to show all of the tones and colors it displays.

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.
