We call it "black moonstone" due to its iridescent optical effects, but it is so much more. The beautiful labradorites Abby set in these exhibit lovely flashes of blue and green that seem to live outside the stone.
The labradorite is about 8mm wide (less than 1/3'') and the "mantel," or silver hand forged bar it dangles from is just under 1.25'' wide. It is stationed on an 18'' diamond cut, blackened silver box chain and has an accompanying 14k yellow gold pebble to really bring out the color flashes in the gemstone.
As always, if you require something different (like a different chain length), do not hesitate to ask. We are grateful for the chance to make it fit you perfectly!
I don't like to impose meanings behind my jewelry. I generally believe that jewelry is such a personal and often intimate thing, that the giver and the receiver should let the meanings come from their heart.
With that said, this piece has a special story.
It may be obvious to some of you, this stone is broken. I can't help but love this piece even more because of it's flaw though. It's the classic irony of life. Something bad, tragic, heart breaking, happens, yet on the other side of it, there's a new beauty. The impact of the fall has forever altered the stone, but the piece that was born is even more beautiful because of it. This piece has an entirely new element of movement now. It's almost as if it dances on your neck.
Of course, please give this necklace your own meaning that is significant to you.
One of my favorite things about these "mantel" piece designs, is that the clasp stays in the back so you don't have to worry about that clasp coming around to the front!
This sweet, one-of-a-kind piece features 2 white freshwater pearls and comes on an 18'' cable chain. All stones are natural and everything else is sterling silver.
As always, if you need additional information, or a different size, don't hesitate to ask! I am happy to make the right fit!
This oval Larimar is prong set in Sterling Silver and sits on the inside of a large ring of silver that I have hammered with a diamond and given extra sparkle! This necklace comes on a 24'' thick sterling silver cable chain and features a sweet little moonstone bead, so that nothing about this piece is boring or usual!
