Sparkle - Sterling silver, gold plated and natural sapphire pendant necklace
Solid sterling silver pendant. Organic edges, textured face. Both sides have been plated in 14k gold.
The gemstone is a large natural blue Australian sapphire (7x5mm) which daylights the back as well, allowing light to play through. They do say that it is best to have your gemstones touching your skin for maximum vibrational benefits.
I have hung this on a sterling-silver gold-plated fine oval chain. About a 22cm drop. Gold plated clasp etc at back also.
The stone has been set using the cast-in-place method which I prefer as it is allows the stone and the metal to join as they wish.
