This is a lovely example of modernist style sterling silver and gemstone jewelry designed and made in the 1970's. The rhodochrosite is exquisite a lovely pink color with plenty of geological detail. There are six 'pendants' total on the sterling silver chain strand. The strand is stamped 925 for sterling at the back, where the stones are open. The necklace measures 17 1/2" long. The largest pendant, the centerpiece measures 1 11/16" long, 1" wide, 5/16" thick. The next size down, the oblong rectangular pendants measure 1 3/16" long, 7/16" wide, 5/16" thick. One of the rectangular pendants is more triangular at one end, measuring just a bit smaller. Finally the smallest pendants (3) teardrop shaped measure 1" long, 11/16" wide, 5/16" thick. The necklace weighs 61 grams. This is a dazzler of a focal piece necklace. Always in style, any season, night or day....

Thanks so much for taking a look here at Just a Ya Ya. Please email with your questions or concerns. I answer all. I hope you will visit again soon as I am listing new pieces all the time for your viewing and shopping fun. ALWAYS be sure to check the banner on the first page of my shop - the monthly deal is ALWAYS there if I am running a special.

****All packages are shipped USPS First Class Mail (2-5 day delivery), insured and packed in a safe and secure eco-friendly thick padded envelope (or box for larger orders). Please let me know if your order is a gift, although I make up all my orders like they are gifts to my clients, I can "gift" wrap your order, and I can enclose a small note card if you would like. Massachusetts residents must pay 6.25% sales tax.

*****INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS - I have now shipped many (over 300) packages via USPS First Class Mail with no problems - I now have a lost or stolen package - I refunded my customer her purchase price and shipping. SO...for the most part you can see it has gone well, but if this is the way “we” decide to ship I can no longer be responsible to refund the money. It is the risk we take. There is always the option of insurable/trackable shipping, but it is costly. So if this is the option you would like to take let me know and I will reserve the piece for you, calculate the shipping charges for you before you place your order, and then you can complete the purchase.

****If you live outside of the US and do not see your country listed in my shipping profile that is because I have not shipped to your country before. I have the $10 everywhere else charge listed to allow you to make a purchase. If I end up shipping your parcel regular 1st class mail it is likely that the shipping will be less than $10 and I will credit your Paypal account the difference. If you would like me to ship it to you International Priority or Express (which are trackable and insurable) I can. It will be more than $10. I would calculate the shipping and send you a Paypal invoice for the difference. I am willing to ship anywhere, it’s just a learning curve. Any questions convo (email) me.

Never hesitate to make an offer, I usually accept reasonable ones. Take care.
Be dazzling,
