This design grew from an unplanned, free carving process, adding sculptural depth and smooth contours. Cast in Argentium 960 premium quality, 100% recycled silver, this specially processed piece for tension setting measures 22mm x19mm, or 7/8 x 3/4 inches, and holds a beautiful 6 millimeter Chatham Alexandrite.
CHATHAM ALEXANDRITE: This beautiful color changing gemstone is the birthstone for June, along with pearl and moonstone. It is very difficult to capture the true colors of Alexandrite in the photos. In natural light the stone is a lovely teal blue with touches of purple, and in incandescent light the color changes to purple with touches of teal blue. Extremely rare and prized in nature, the Chatham Created Alexandrite provides an economical and environmentally responsible alternative to mined alexandrite. Lab grown under the same conditions which create an alexandrite in nature, Chatham alexandrites are identical physically, chemically, spectrally and optically to mined alexandrites.

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.

This necklace is gorgeous and dealing with the artist was so easy. They responded quickly to my queries and patiently. It arrived in a pretty gift box and I can't wait to gift it to my soon to be new daughter-in-law before the wedding this next week.
