“Becoming” One of a kind 14k yellow gold filled tree of life pendant necklace on a genuine Ocean Jasper stone.
Ocean Jasper is easily one of my favorite varieties of jasper, so full of color and life. It often reminds me of blossoming foliage or colorful corals with it’s patterns and tones. This one brings to mind a blossoming tree canopy in the spring; new life in the process of becoming. It can’t be rushed, but it can be appreciated, one day at a time.
This Ocean Jasper is square cut and smooth. The stone is set on a hammered 14k yellow gold filled square backing with spiral detail and mounted in a very secure 14k yellow gold filled woven bezel, which flows beautifully into the tree design on the front of the stone. Completing the design is a 14k yellow gold filled chain with a diamond cut chain extension, making it adjustable and versatile.
This necklace is one of a kind, you will receive the exact one shown in the photos. Necklace has been photographed from various angles with both indoor and outdoor lighting to best capture its colors and patterning.
-Pendant measures 28mm (just under 1 1/8″) tall (not including the top loop which adds about 1/4″), 28mm (just under 1 1/8″) wide, and about 8mm (just over 1/4″) deep.
-The stone is a genuine natural square cut ocean jasper showing tones of green, cream, pink, and orange.
-Setting is entirely hand forged and woven in 14k yellow gold filled.
-Chain is a 1.1mm width 14k yellow gold filled cable chain with spring ring clasp. 14k yellow gold filled diamond cut extender chain completes it and makes it adjustable from 26 to 30 inches.
-Each of my Tree of Life necklaces are one of a kind, no two are ever the same. I absolutely love creating these and watching them take form. They always amaze and delight me with their unique personalities when they’re completed.

ABOUT OCEAN JASPER

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.
