Cast in a high purity Argentium 960, 100% recycled silver, this pendant measures 24mm x 14mm (15/16 x 9/16") and is set with a beautiful 8X6mm cushion cut Chatham Opal (1.085ct.) and 2.5mm each White Sapphire side stones.
This pendant was originally produced in gold as a versatile design to frame the main stone in a shape that not only circles it, but has enough depth to form a generous incorporated bail. To accommodate accenting side stones, two segments that pass at angles to each other are bridged with a hidden connection, allowing the stones to show themselves off, while also emphasizing the silver shapes that hold them.
CHATHAM OPAL: Precious opal produces brilliant color flashes when turned in the light. These color flashes are known as “play of color”. Lab grown under the same conditions which create an opal in nature, Chatham opals are identical physically, chemically, spectrally, and optically to the finest mined opals. Opal, along with tourmaline, is the birthstone for October.
WHITE SAPPHIRE: The colorless member of the sapphire family, white sapphires are a natural and affordable alternative to diamonds. More expensive than CZs, but far less expensive than diamonds and nearly as brilliant as both. A lovely, durable gemstone and the birthstone for September.
This pendant is shipped with a protective pouch via First Class Mail in a recycled gift box. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
ARGENTIUM SILVER is a special alloy, verified as the most tarnish resistant made, but an occasional simple wipe with a soft cloth, and tucking the piece into the provided, protective pouch will further enhance its natural aversion to tarnish. Eco friendly recycled silver.
