“Autumnal Glow” One of a kind 14k yellow gold filled tree of life pendant necklace on a genuine Labradorite stone.
This Labradorite is oval cut and shows a beautiful velvety array of greens, golds, and orange. The stone is set on a hammered 14k 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 gold filled chain completes the design.
The tree is positively glowing amidst the colors of the stone, bringing to mind a warm, luminescent autumn afternoon with a bit of crispness in the air and the gentle touch of sunlight dancing across outstretched branches.

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.
