Delicate natural, untreated round garnet beads are accented by solid sterling spacers in this pretty necklace. Suspended from the center of the piece, centered between 2 solid sterling beads, is a n entirely handmade one-of-a-kind fine silver pendant in a 3-dimensional vine and leaf motif. Necklace closes with a sterling spring-ring clasp.
Garnet, the birthstone for January, is a rich violet/raspberry/red stone. These are all natural, mined-from-the-earth gemstones, which have not been treated. Natural gemstone beads often tend to be rough inside when drilled. As such, they can easily abrade and break fragile stringing material. To avoid this, I string my genuine gemstone necklaces on very strong and supple coated stainless wire.
Necklace is 17.5" long, which is a perfect size to fall at the right point inside of a collared blouse. Piece will come packaged in an attractive gift box.
