In a rather stunning mix of materials, this necklace features a large, faceted, tourmalinated quartz stone, which is framed by two sculpted polymer clay scallops in matte grey. From the central array, a darkly glazed grey trapezoid hangs. The sterling silver chain is connected to the gemstone collar by two curved, pale pink blown-glass tubes. The piece is entirely fashioned with sterling silver, and is finished with a chartreuse green polymer clay "SG" tag.

I have to admit that I'm rather in love with this piece, by the range of colors and contrasts, shapes, techniques and materials. I'd call this a statement necklace.


+ faceted tourmalinated quartz pillow stone is approx. 3cm wide
+ features (2) matte grey sculpted polymer half-circles with etched design
+ dark grey porcelain puffed trapezoid on .925 chain with 3cm drop
+ (2) curved pink glass beads connect 3 in. of chain to .925 spring ring

Frequently asked questions about softgoldco

I stand by the quality of my gold vermeil and plated pieces, so much so that I guarantee them and offer to re-plate should that ever be required of your piece. (Frankly, if you wear it so much that this would be needed, I'll take it as the ultimate compliment.)

For reference:

14k GOLD VERMEIL / True vermeil is defined by U.S. law as no less than 2.5µ of gold layered over sterling silver. Vermeil is 50x heavier than standard gold-plating.

HANDMADE & PROFESSIONALLY-PLATED / Meticulously made by hand, then plated by professionals with a long history of working with jewelry artisans. This is NOT the "gold flash" plating you might have in mind. Instead, each of my pieces is finished with a heavy layer of fine karat gold. Nickel-free.
RECYCLED .925 STERLING SILVER / I choose to use eco silver in my pieces, recycled and made in the USA. All gold-vermeil pieces are hand-fabricated first from eco silver.

14K GOLD-FILLED / Made with a substantial layer of gold (1/20th total weight) bonded to a base metal core using heat & pressure. Can be soldered and handled similarly to solid metals. The downside? Many metalsmithing techniques would expose the base-metal core, and so its use can be somewhat limiting. With care, gold filled pieces will last many years.
Jewelry is by nature delicate, so please handle your new pieces with relative care. If a piece requires repair due to workmanship, please let me know. I will be happy to repair as needed, at no cost to you beyond return shipping.

To maintain the finish on pieces, I do not recommend wearing jewelry in water, while sleeping or when exercising. Storage in a cool, dry place is recommended. Steamy bathrooms...not so much.
STERLING SILVER / Silver will develop a patina; it is its nature! Pieces can easily be brought back to a bright sheen using polishing cloths (I'm partial to the Sunshine brand).

14k GOLD & GOLD FILLED / Microfiber is a great all-around cloth, but gold and gold-filled pieces will gleam if polished with a Sunshine cloth.

14k GOLD VERMEIL & PLATED / Microfiber cloths are the best, especially those with a very smooth weave. I do not recommend using polishing cloths impregnated with polishing compounds on vermeil or plated pieces.

STONE-SET PIECES / Gently clean with a microfiber cloth.
The best way to get a precise measure is to go to a local jeweler and have them size you. Otherwise, I would recommend purchasing a metal ring sizer, to get the most accurate measure (and to ensure confident online purchases in the future). As a measurement, it is very hard to accurately DIY, and the apps and printable ones online are largely unreliable.

Bear in mind that your knuckles pose less resistance to thin stacking rings, so for skinny rings I tend to recommend sizing down 1/4 to 1/2 size in comparison to wider bands and statement rings, which need to be a touch larger to fit over knuckles.
To ensure a custom fit, wrap a measuring tape or length of string around your wrist, to determine circumference. If using the string method, measure the string with a ruler. :)

As I add to this measurement to accommodate the gap in the cuff, a snug measurement is best. Six inches (15cm) is average, and suits most women.
