Diaphanous Opal Chip Necklace
A shorter necklace to be worn close to the neck, this is a wonderful piece for layering, or if you tend to wear shirts with higher necklines. Each little faceted opal chip is surrounded by sterling silver round beads to give that mixed metal appearance with the lovely gold chain.
Complete with our signature handcrafted tension "S" clasp closure. Perfect for anyone that struggles with solo-clasping a lobster or spring ring clasp.
Metal: 14k Gold filled and sterling silver
Dimensions: Necklace is a little under 14" (Please contact us if you'd like a longer version!)
ABOUT 14k GOLD FILLED:
*Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold
*Gold plating is the lower level and these items tend to tarnish and can often times turn the skin green. Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal.
*If you can wear gold jewelry without skin sensitivity, you can most likely wear gold filled!
*Many owners find that they never have to clean gold-filled items at all. If it's necessary, clean gold-filled using mild soap and water. Hot weather and water will not damage the material
*During the mid to late Victorian period, gold filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers.
OPAL is formed from rain. We are not sure EXACTLY how this process goes, but many believe it is formed when water from rain seeps down into crevasses in the rock. Once the water evaporates, the silica that is left behind dries out and hardens into precious. On the more metaphysical side, it can sooth and clear the emotional body, and boosts the will to live and the joy of one’s earthly existence. It kindles optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion.
