14K Gold Russian Chrome Diopside Jewelry, Tree of Life pendant Russian Chrome Diopside. Deepest, richest emerald green wire wrapped fine jewelry gift for her.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered 14k gold fill wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Gold filled items are regulated by the government. (Unlike "gold plated" which has no regulation.) Gold filled wears, looks and lasts like solid gold because its outer surface IS solid gold. Everything you can see and touch is pure gold. In the jewelry industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant than plated. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry.

The micro-faceted Chrome Diopside rondelles of this pendant are just gorgeous! Very high quality gemstones with beautiful color and clarity. They make for a very majestic, very elegant pendant. The rondelles are a range of 3- 4mm in size.

Measuring approximately 1.25" (32mm) in diameter (not including bail), it's a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear. You won't find another like it anywhere! (Pictured pendant has sold. Yours will be made to order. Please allow a slight, natural variation - just like a real tree!)


** About the gemstone ***

Chrome Diopside isn't as well known as other gemstones and though it has an ugly name, it's one of the most stunning gems you'll ever find. The color is so rich, so deep and so intense it just doesn't seem real. But, Chrome Diopside is an all natural untreated gemstone -- no heat, no radiation, no diffusion and no oils are used. This makes Chrome Diopside the most pure semi-precious gem available.

Chrome Diopside is also called "Russian Emerald" or "Siberian Emerald" because of it's rich, amazing green. Many people say Chrome Diopside is what Emerald wishes it could be when it grows up! The name Diopside is derived from the Greek word 'di' meaning two, and 'opsis', meaning vision. The "Chrome" part comes from the element Chromium which is what gives it the rich, green color. This is also what gives Emeralds their green color.

Chrome Diopside is believed to be a creative stone, increasing creative visualization and helping to manifest desired goals. Found only in remote Siberia, it can only be mined three months of the year making it a rare and valuable gemstone.

Chrome Diopside is also a wonderful alternative to the May birthstone of Emerald. I am a May baby and have taken advantage of Chrome Diopside's beauty myself and own several pieces of it in lieu of more expensive Emerald. Emeralds are beautiful, but outside my budget and the quality and stunning intensity of color in Chrome Diopside makes it a wonderful substitute!


A lovely gift for someone who is born in May or who just loves the amazing color of Chrome Diopside. It is a gorgeous stone and makes for a striking piece when worn!


++++++++++ PLEASE NOTE ++++++++++
CHROME DIOPSIDE IS BECOMING EXTREMELY RARE AND PRICES HAVE BEEN STEADILY RISING. Even through a gem wholesaler, it's now running upwards of $100 and more a strand. This makes it almost impossible to be able to offer and it's why this is the ONLY high quality Chrome Diopside Tree of Life pendant available on etsy.


The Tree of Life is a concept that's been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things - the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane - the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This is an absolutely stunning piece of jewelry in person. I think what I was most happy - and surprised - about was that it really did glow in the dark like the picture. Many times I see product images and expect the real product to not quite live up to my expectations. This one most certainly did. :)
