Blue Composite Gemstone Mountain Scene
Blue gemstone composite and moonstone gems create a starry night sky scene through electroforming. The chain and clasp are 14k rose gold filled with gemstone details up the chain.
Electroforming is a super cool scientific process that takes natural materials, and deposits layers and layers of copper onto them. The process is can be unpredictable, and each piece will have unique textures from the way the copper is deposited and the electrical current that ran through it!
Metal: Copper and 14k rose gold filled
Gemstones: Moonstone and composite gemstone. These stones are an excellent way to reduce waste when cutting gems. The leftover "bits" are stabilized and then cut into a gem shape as if it was an original solid piece.
Dimensions: Pendant is about 1.55" x 1.5"
Complete with our signature handcrafted tension "S" clasp closure. Perfect for anyone that struggles with solo-clasping a lobster or spring ring clasp.
Copper is antimicrobial, meaning it inhibits the growth of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and viruses. It’s been used medicinally for thousands of years! It was then formed into cooking implements, and soon became popular for status symbol jewelry. Copper is also conductive, and is one of the only naturally forming metals used in jewelry making. When left unattended, copper will oxidize, and form a unique greenish patina. But if that’s not your thing it can be easily cleaned with at-home remedies, or if it’s set with a gemstone, it can be sent back to us for a complimentary cleaning!
MOONSTONE is a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten - then brought to light. Moonstone is full of feminine energy and opens the heart to nurturing qualities as well as assisting in the acceptance of love.

*If you can wear gold jewelry without skin sensitivity, you can most likely wear gold filled!
*During the mid to late Victorian period, gold filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers.
